NCWIT BridgeUP STEM
The two-year BridgeUP STEM Program at Georgia Tech provides opportunities for high school girls, women, and gender non-conforming individuals of all backgrounds from the Atlanta area to learn the skills of computer science and participate in research projects in small groups with their peers, university students, and faculty mentors within a research university setting.
The BridgeUP STEM Scholars program is for high school students, with minimal or limited access to coding classes and resources, who are enrolled in the 9th-11th grade by the start of the program.
BridgeUP STEM Scholars participate in an introduction to programming non-credit course, learn from faculty mentors and student researchers, and build a sense of community through periodic student activities.
The BridgeUP STEM Scholars also receive a $2000 stipend over the course of the program.
