  • Within the application, the students will have to answer the following questions:
    • Why do you wish to participate in the selected camps?
    • What are your interests and achievements in math and science?
    • What aspect of STEM interests you most?
    • What are your future job aspirations?
  • The students will have the option to choose their first, second, and third camp preferences.
  • Paper applications can be accessed here.
  • Summer Camps are offered at no cost to participants. 
  • Camps are listed by the grade the student will be entering in the Fall of 2019.
Donations Accepted!
Thanks to our vibrant funding community, TRSA is able to provide our STEM opportunities at no cost to participants. If you would like to join this team of individual, corporate and philanthropic donors to ensure that these opportunities are available to students and educators, please consider making a donation below. In 2018, the average cost of a week long camp for one student was $200. Together we are building broad, deep, and innovative STEM pathways for all students to access high-impact careers.
