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 high school 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 students, scholars have the opportunity to learn about various STEM tools (such as robotics, app development, CAD, & entrepreneurship) 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.
2023 Summer Camp will take place on the U-M Ann Arbor Campus. Current 9th, 10th, & 11th graders can apply at http://myumi.ch/2mxQ4. Applicants will receive notice of acceptance or waitlist by May 9, 2023.
