The Baruch College Now STEM Research Academy program is designed to provide NYC public high school students with an opportunity to build their science knowledge and skills by engaging in ‘authentic inquiry’ activities. Utilizing a two-semester program model (spring and summer) 25 students will be selected based on English & Math Regents, GPA, writing sample, and transcript review.

Selected students will be enrolled in the spring Introduction to Research class to strengthen basic skills such as formulating researchable questions, designing testable experiments, performing literature searches and reading scientific literature. The goal of the spring course is to introduce students to the expectations of working in a research lab environment. Upon successful completion of the spring course, students interested in conducting research over the summer will be matched with CUNY research faculty and participate in a structured five to six-week internship program.

A stipend of $1000 (upon completion of summer research experience)
Possibility of earning high school credit (at the discretion of your high school)
College and career exploration
