UMES, NASA join to offer minority youth summer camp

Posted

WASHINGTON — Nearly $130,000 from the federal government will fund partnerships between NASA and Maryland universities to support young students entering careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore is one of the beneficiaries, and funding supports a two-week residential program for high school students called HAWKS MUREP Precollege Summer Institute. The Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) is July 10-22 and NASA Wallops is a partner.

Funding is through the Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) and administered through NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement — which Senators Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin and Congressmen Dutch Ruppersberger, John Sarbanes, and Kweisi Mfume secured an additional $10 million for in the FY22 appropriations legislation.

For more information about the summer program at UMES contact Dr. Joseph Arumala at Joarumala@umes.edu.
