COMPONENTS OF THE APPLICATION PROCESS
The STEM Institutes application involves 3 components and is more efficient than ever!
It is designed for parents and students to complete together. Application link is not compatible with iPads or other mobile devices.
1. Student/Parent Form
The Student/Parent form is arranged in three parts and should be completed accordingly.
• Student Information
• Student Questionnaire
• Parent Questionnaire
2. Teacher Recommendation Form
(Please provide teacher’s name and email address in the application – link will be emailed to them)
A teacher recommendation form must be completed and submitted by a teacher. This online form will be emailed to the teacher with your student’s name referenced in the email. We encourage parents and/or students to follow up with teachers who are completing recommendations to help expedite your application. Once returned complete, the recommendation will be linked to your student’s application.
3. Adult Recommendation Form
(Please provide non-related adult name and email address in the application – link will be emailed to them)
A recommendation form must be completed and submitted by an adult outside of the student applicant’s family. This online form will be emailed to the non-related adult with your student’s name referenced in the email. We encourage parents and/or students to follow up with adults who are completing recommendations to help expedite your application. Once returned complete, the recommendation will be linked to your student’s application.
Please allow a week once the application is complete (including letters of recommendation) to receive notification from the STEM Institutes. We encourage parents and/or students to follow up with teachers and adults who are completing recommendations to help expedite your application.
