NxtGEN Summer Institute

The NxtGEN STEM Scholars Summer Institute is a virtual pre-first-year summer transition program for first-year MI-LSAMP scholars from across the Alliance (underrepresented minority students interested in or majoring in STEM) designed to help our scholars develop a wide range of tools, skills, networks and resources to help them transition to college.

The Institute focuses on preparing our scholars from an intentional and holistic perspective with sessions focused on the STEM experience (career paths, navigating STEM-related courses, etc.), helping students find their WHY, time management, study skills, health/well-being and a variety of other topics. 

The 2024 NxtGen STEM Scholars Summer Institute will be occurring July 29, 2024- August 9, 2024. Be on the lookout for more information regarding the 2024 NxtGEN STEM Scholars Summer Institute in Spring 2024.
