Program Details

NYU GSTEM is an intensive six-week summer program for high school girls who have a high aptitude in STEM subjects. Students are paired with a STEM researcher who will mentor them through a research project in their field. Students will also participate in activities such as workshops, lectures, and field trips.

In addition to hands-on laboratory techniques and/or programming and data processing skills, students attend workshops in scientific writing and public speaking to help them gain confidence in communicating their research. Girls complete the program having met other like-minded and talented thinkers—a network that lasts well beyond the program. 

Students receive a letter grade and an NYU transcript upon completion of a written research paper and an oral presentation. The program is geared for rising seniors though rising juniors may apply. 

GSTEM is a commuter program that does not offer housing. Students will commute to their internship on Mondays through Thursdays and report to NYU on Fridays for group activities.

July 2 – 6 Orientation Week:
Students will attend lectures, workshops, and social activities to help them prepare for the program.
July 9 – August 9 Internship Weeks:
Monday - Thursday of each week students will work on their various research projects alongside NYU researchers. Fridays will be spent attending lectures, workshops, field excursions, and social events.
August 10 Annual Symposium:
On the last day of the program students will present their research in a celebratory event with family and friends.

Official transcripts may be e-mailed to admissions.docs@nyu.edu, or mailed to:
