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

For release: March 8, 2012
For press information, contact Shirley Cowley, 901-678-2345

Funded by a special grant from the Tennessee Board of Regents, the University of Memphis will offer a residential summer session July 8-21 to let high school students explore the various STEM fields – the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics – and to help them envision attending college to study those subjects.  The STEM Academy is open to students who will be high school sophomores and juniors in the fall of 2012.

Chosen from Memphis City Schools and 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 9th 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 13.

A printable application is available online at
