2024 UNITE Program

UNITE is a pre-collegiate summer experience for talented high school students from groups historically underrepresented and underserved in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). It will take place at the Department of Physics of the University of Puerto Rico Río Piedras campus (03-28 June, 2024). UNITE encourages students to pursue college majors and careers in engineering and other STEM-related fields through a program of focused hands-on rigorous academics, enrichment, and career exploration.

UNITE targets rising 9th through 12th grade students. Student applications for 2024 summer programs will be accepted until 3rd April 2024. Applications will be reviwed during 4 - 30 April, and on 1 May the notifications will be sent to the selected participants. Students accepted into a program receive support and enrichment designed to best help them achieve their goals of higher education and careers in STEM.
