U of M Will Offer Summer STEM Academy for High School Students

Contact: Amanda O. Williams

March 5, 2014 - Funded by a special grant from the Tennessee Board of Regents, the University of Memphis will offer a residential summer session June 8-21 to let high school students explore STEM fields – the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics – to help them envision studying those subjects in college. The STEM Academy is open to students who will be high school sophomores and juniors in fall 2014.

Chosen from the Shelby County Schools, the students will live on campus in U of M residence halls during the two-week session. Housing, meals and all activities will be paid for by the grant.

To be selected, students must have successfully completed Algebra I. They also must have finished the ninth grade and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75. A letter of recommendation is required from a teacher or staff member at an applicant's high school.

Space is limited in this competitive program. The application deadline is April 18. A printable application is available online at http://www.memphis.edu/pdfs/mathacademy14.pdf

For more information, contact Amanda O. Williams at aowillms@memphis.edu.
