You are drawn to study science because you want to know how the world works. 你知道你选择的专业能做什么. 但在这个时代, specializing may not get you where you want to go—what happens if you can work with other scientists and engineers—those outside your discipline? 你认为你能做到什么? 

This is the purpose of the STEM学者计划: supporting students majoring in STEM fields, 比如生物学, 化学, 和工程, where in your first year you will be encouraged to connect with peers who think like you do, 但是有不同的观点. You'll also live in the highly-coveted Northside Commons residence hall, in a wing specifically set aside for your fellow STEM scholars. 在你的前三个学期,  you will get a jump start on forming collaborations and research ideas to move forward within your major. Your chances to interact with your friends and fellow scientists and engineers will expand beyond those in your classes or your residence hall. Working collaboratively and combining your knowledge from multiple fields, 你将得到支持和鼓励去识别, 理解, and directly impact real-world problems in our immediate community and beyond.

在第三学期, there will be an opportunity to apply for the newly assembled York 参与的学者 (YES). The YES program will allow you to continue your multidisciplinary skill-building by working with other scholars on design thinking, 创业设计和发明过程. 通过这些机会, you will have a deeper 理解ing of how you can work with other scientists and scholars to apply your specialized knowledge and, ultimately, change the world. Priority will be given to applications received by February 1, 2024. Applications will continue to be reviewed on a rolling basis after that date.

感兴趣? 以下是你应该考虑这个项目的原因.

  • The opportunity to build a lasting community with other scientists.

    All 茎的学者 will live on campus in a residence hall with the other scholars for the first year. 你们将一起上课, 一起学习, and live together—which will enhance your personal and interpersonal development. 额外奖励:你的助理将是STEM专业的!

  • The opportunity to participate in meaningful work by targeting a broad problem.

    Woven throughout your first two years at YCP is the STEM Colloquium (STM 100 and STM 200). This course serves as the meeting point for your collaboration and innovative work with other scientists to impact the world. In STM 100 you will work with faculty and community partners to identify an interdisciplinary project that is relevant to the field.

  • 接触多方面的指导.

    The 茎的学者 will have the opportunity to work one on one with:

    • 其他STEM学生作为同伴导师
    • 创新和跨学科的教师队伍
    • 当地工业的主要成员

    A multi-prong approach to mentoring will provide you with countless resources and support for developing your academic and career plans.
