We are currently taking applications for two summer high school educational programs that will take place on the UNM main campus.
The programs: UNITE (sponsored by the US Army Educational Outreach Program) and the Summer Transportation Institute (sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration) and is for students entering the 10th and 11th grades in high school.
Both programs are packed with educational events designed to encourage students to pursue degree programs in engineering or other STEM related fields.
Both summer programs adhere to the same program schedule; however, the major difference between the two is that one is a commuter program where students commute to UNM each day (for their commuting, they are awarded a small stipend at the end of the program). The other program is a residential program where the students live in the UNM dormitories for the duration of the program.
The dates for the programs are June 4th -23, 2017. The deadline to apply is Friday, May 19th.
I have attached an application packet along with a flyer for this year's program.
Please share this information with students at your school that you think will be interested in a career in the STEM fields.
