    Good Morning,


    As part of an initiative to bolster New Jersey’s STEM education and career pipeline, the Governor’s STEM Scholars was created as a public-private partnership among the Research & Development Council, Governor’s Office, Department of Education, Office of the Secretary of Higher Education, higher education institutions, and private industries that identifies and develops New Jersey’s next STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) thought leaders. Students are invited to apply to be Governor’s STEM Scholars for the 2020-2021 academic year on the program’s website from now through June 20, 2020.

Scholars will also be required to attend four annual Governor’s STEM Scholars symposiums that introduce them to STEM opportunities in industryacademia, and government to help connect them to professionals in their fields of interest. Highlights of the program also include field trips, such as to Celgene’s facilities in Summit, NJ
