Re: Applications Now Being Accepted for the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University
The Pennsylvania Department of Education is pleased to announce that the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University
is now accepting applications from talented high school juniors for the summer 2014 program.
PGSS is an intensive, five-week summer residential program, which emphasizes cooperative learning and hands-on laboratory research,
for 56 talented high school juniors pursuing careers in science and mathematics.
With the support of Governor Tom Corbett, the state Department of Education, Carnegie Mellon University and the school’s alumni,
the program offers an enrichment experience in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The goal of the program is to encourage Pennsylvania’s youth to pursue careers in STEM-related fields.
Accepted applicants will receive a full scholarship to the program. Costs are underwritten through a $150,000 grant
from the state Department of Education with matching funds provided by the school’s alumni, Carnegie Mellon University, parents and corporations.
Awarded scholarships will cover the costs of housing, meals and all instructional materials. Families are responsible for transportation to and from
the university, personal items and spending money. Students must commit to living on campus at Carnegie Mellon University throughout the duration of the program.
