Governor's STEM Scholars


The Governor’s STEM Scholars Program is a free, statewide STEM education initiative for New Jersey students in grades 10 through the PhD level. Through a series of four conferences during the school year, as well as trips to STEM organizations across the state, the Governor’s STEM Scholars provides students with opportunities to closely interact with New Jersey STEM professionals, research organizations, and state policymakers to educate themselves about and experience the state’s STEM economy.
