Northeastern University’s Center for STEM Education offers summer STEM programs for middle- and high-school students.
NUSSP is a three-week academic program (July 8-19) for students currently in Grades 5-7 who have an interest in STEM, live within 30 miles of Northeastern, and are in historically under-served and underrepresented groups with limited opportunities. The program builds STEM knowledge and skills, introduces participants to college life, and stimulates interest in STEM careers.
The cost is $500 and a limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Applications (including two-part essay and recommendations) are due March 15.
The Young Scholars Program, running June 24-August 1, is for current high-school juniors who live within commuting distance of Northeastern (with priority given to students who have low access to similar programs). It offers selected students laboratory research experience, career exploration and counseling, and an introduction to college life. Applications (including short essay questions and teacher recommendations) are due March 1.
