Houghton, Michigan – Michigan Technological University will host girls who are juniors in high school and interested in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields at a Leadership Institute May 10-11 at the University.
“Michigan Tech’s goal is to increase female enrollment to 35% by 2020, so it’s important to engage female students interested in STEM fields and help them find a college campus where they feel comfortable,” says Allison Carter, director of admissions at Michigan Tech. “We think the Leadership Institute is a great way to get prospective female undergraduate students excited about Tech’s academics, lifestyle and outcomes.
There is a scholarship incentive too. If a Leadership Institute participant enrolls at Tech as a full-time student, she will receive a $1,000 scholarship applied to her first year’s tuition. The scholarship is funded by donors, as is the Leadership Institute.
