2019 Governor's STEM Scholars 

The Governor’s STEM Scholars Program is accepting applications for the 2018-19 academic year. The program, a public-private partnership for students interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), is open to New Jersey students from grade 10 to the Ph.D. level. If accepted, student scholars receive a comprehensive introduction to the state’s STEM industry through a series of conferences, field trips, internship opportunities, and a research project. The program seeks to attract a diverse group of 75 high school and post-secondary students who are passionate about STEM and who are representative of all of New Jersey. The Governor’s STEM Scholars Program is an initiative of the Research & Development Council of New Jersey, the Governor’s Office, the New Jersey Department of Education, and the Secretary of Higher Education.

The Governor’s STEM Scholars Program provides students with firsthand learning about STEM professions and allows them to engage in meaningful dialogue with representatives of New Jersey’s vast STEM industry, including research and development leaders, academic professionals, and state policymakers. The program offers scholars the ability to make mentoring connections that can last into their professional careers.

In addition to attending four themed conferences on Saturdays throughout the school year, scholars will visit actual research & development facilities to meet STEM professionals.

Students who are accepted into the Governor’s STEM Scholars program will receive a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build connections and discover what the state has to offer across all sectors of the STEM field – academia, industry, and government.
