NAF Future Ready Scholars at University of Michigan
NAF Future Ready Scholars at the University of Michigan is a multi-year, STEM-focused career and college readiness program offered to NAF Academy & MEZ students within Southeast Michigan. Participating students spend two weeks in immersive summer camp at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, engaging in the Engineering Design Process to solve problems that matter to them. With guidance from MEZ instructors and U-M engineering students, scholars have the opportunity to learn about various technology tools (such as robotics, computer programming, 3D printing, and website design) and use them in collaborative teams to invent and prototype brighter, healthier, and more just futures. Additionally, students participate in college and career readiness sessions that help put them on a path toward post-secondary success through SAT prep, career exploration, and job shadowing opportunities. Programming continues during the school year through monthly Saturday Sessions, providing local and ongoing opportunities for career awareness, exploration, and preparation throughout their high school years.
This program is free-of-cost to students and families, and all student participants receive a $300 stipend upon completion of the summer camp.
We are currently planning for Summer 2022 to take place in-person on the University of Michigan’s campus. Any future updates or changes to the camp plans will be shared with all admitted students and families during orientation in the spring.
Program Dates: July 17-30, 2022
