We are so excited to share information about the TryEngineering Summer Institute Scholarship Program with you and your students.
A number of additional need-based scholarships are available for students who have a passion for engineering, but who don’t have the financial means to attend the TryEngineering Summer Institute program. As a scholarship recipient, they’ll have the opportunity to attend tuition-free with room and board included.
Scholarship Deadline: April 9th, 2021
IEEE, the world’s largest not-for-profit technical association for engineers and technologists, created this program to inspire the next generation of problem-solvers and difference-makers. Held on university campuses across the United States, this two-week summer program helps teenagers explore STEM in a whole new way—and the experience looks great on college applications!
During the program, students ages 13-17 will experience:
- Hands-on design challenges
- Life on a college campus
- A chance to speak to working engineers about their career paths
- Field trips to engineering facilities (previous visits have included NASA’s Johnson Space Center, ConEdison power stations, and more)
If you’d like, I can provide informational materials about the program that you can share with your students. You can also access information materials here on our website.
Thanks for being part of our mission to introduce the next generation to a fulfilling career in engineering and helping to make a difference in the lives of these students. Together, we can help put more kids on the path to STEM careers.
