ARISE 2017 Application

The Center for K12 STEM Education at NYU Tandon School of Engineering is now accepting applications for our fourth cohort of NYC high school students to participate in Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering (ARISE), a free summer research program in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines. In addition to performing authentic research while being mentored by a graduate student and/or faculty member in a faculty lab on NYU's campus, students are taught public speaking skills, complete a presentation on their work, and learn about the history and ethics of science and research. Some of the previous ninety ARISE participants have continued their research into the school year, co-authored scientific papers, attended professional conferences, or entered science competitions based on their work.

To learn about this opportunity, visit the program's website here.

Greetings Colleagues,

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions at New York University is pleased to announce that the application for the 2017 NYU College Access Leadership Institute (NYU CALI) is now live! The program will take place from July 16th to July 21st.

NYU CALI is a five-day residential program for current high school sophomores and juniors that aims to demystify the college admissions process. The program will include workshops and small group sessions on a variety of topics, including:

  • College admissions
  • College entrance test preparation
  • Essay and resume writing
  • Interviewing and presentation skills
  • Financial aid literacy

NYU CALI graduates become certified College Access Ambassadors and will act as mentors and advisers in their high schools by conducting their very own college application workshop.

Successful applicants to the program are academically talented high school students from underrepresented communities in the New York metro area who demonstrate exceptional leadership abilities in their schools and communities. If selected, students are awarded a full scholarship to NYU CALI, and are only expected to cover travel expenses to and from NYU.

Visit our website for application instructions.

Space in NYU CALI is limited, so please encourage your students to apply early! The deadline is April 1st.

If you or your students have any questions about the program, please feel free to reach out to me at

We look forward to reading about your students!
