High School Juniors Can Now Apply For 2022 Governor’s School For The Sciences

On October 22, Department of Education Secretary Noe Ortega announced applications are now being accepted for the 2022 Pennsylvania
Governor’s School for the Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and encouraged eligible students to apply.

The deadline to apply is January 31.  Applicants must be Pennsylvania residents in their junior year of high school.

“The Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Sciences is a great opportunity for students interested in strengthening their STEM skills, networking, and preparing for a meaningful postsecondary experience,” said Secretary Ortega. “This program opens doors for talented students all across the commonwealth, especially for students who may have less access to high-quality resources, materials, and curriculum.”

PGSS is an intensive, five-week summer residential program that emphasizes cooperative learning and hands-on laboratory research for high school juniors pursuing careers in science and mathematics. 

With the support of Gov. Tom Wolf, the Department of Education, Carnegie Mellon University and its alumni, the program offers an enrichment experience in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). 

The goal of the program is to encourage Pennsylvania’s youth to pursue careers in STEM-related fields. 

Accepted applicants will receive a full scholarship to the program. Awarded scholarships will cover the costs of housing, meals, and all instructional materials.

 Families are responsible for transportation to and from the university, personal items, and spending money. Students must commit to living on campus at Carnegie Mellon University throughout the duration of the program. 

PGSS offers students the opportunity to participate in true scientific research and specialized scientific study. 

The program also seeks to maintain a pipeline of modern technological talent throughout Pennsylvania and promotes the involvement of under-represented and minority students in STEM fields.
