The New Scientist-Catalyst program is a uniquely blended academic and orientation program for newly admitted students of all backgrounds who are committed to increasing the representation of historically underrepresented groups in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The program begins with an introductory three-week online academic course that focuses on developing science concepts, problem solving and learning skills. By the end of this program, you will develop effective group working skills and study practices and engage with challenging problems in STEM. 

The experience is meant to empower students in their pursuit of science and set them on the path to be dynamic members of the New Scientist Collective, an academic year program focused on building community. The application closes July 11, 2022
