February 14, 2023

VINCENNES, Ind. – Registration is now underway for the weeklong Vincennes University Summer STEM Academy. For the second straight year, VU is offering current 10th and 11th-grade students throughout Indiana the opportunity to take a deep dive into the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and get a taste of college life.

The academy is June 25-30, 2023. It engages high school students in intensive project-based learning and hands-on research projects to increase college attendance and interest in the STEM fields. They will live in residence halls on the 200+ acre Vincennes Campus, eat in the Tecumseh Dining Hall, visit local STEM employers, connect with VU alumni working in STEM fields, earn two college credits in a study skills course, and enjoy a variety of fun activities and recreation.

Registration for current high school sophomores and juniors is open through March 15 or until all slots are filled. There is a waitlist once capacity is met.

There is a $50 registration fee. Scholarship opportunities are available for those who cannot afford the fee. The VU Summer STEM Academy is supported through a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc.

For more information, contact Director of Pre-College Programs and STEM Academy Coordinator Nicole Hagemeier-McVay at or 812-888-4324.
