Each year West Point’s Center for Leadership in Diversity (CLD) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) conducts a 4-day resident workshop at USMA for students currently in 6thand 7th grades. This unique middle school program offers students the opportunity to participate in hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematics activities taught by Academy faculty and cadet mentors. Other than transportation to/from West Point, cost is free for participants.
The 2018 Middle School STEM Workshop will be held 29 May – 1 June 2018. (Please note, session dates are based cadet training schedules and facility availability. While these dates may conflict with some schools, they are the only dates available.)
Students must be a citizen of the United States, demonstrate a strong academic performance, and strong interest in pursuing college.

Housing, meals, and all activities will be provided by the scholarship, however travel for students to and from West Point is not included and must be provided by the family.
