Latest Announcements

New Graduate Fellowship for Students Entering a Thesis-based STEM Graduate Program.

In view of cancellation of several NJSGC summer programs due to Covid-19, NJSGC is pleased to announce of the availability of graduate fellowships for students entering doctoral or thesis-based masters programs in STEM fields at New Jersey colleges and universities. Please see attached document for details and application form.

Announcement Regarding Summer Academic Internships

Because of closure of campuses and mailrooms, we have not been able to collect and process all of the applications for the summer internships. Therefore, selection of summer interns will not be made until mid-May. At that time, we will also ask advisers of applicants whether they can supervise the summer interns effectively in view of the social distancing and in-person advising restrictions that are in place at college campuses.

If we are able to run the summer internship program this year, we will likely either shorten the duration of the internship and/or start the program later than June 1.

In the event that we cannot run the summer internship program, funds designated for summer internships will be allocated to the Academic Year Internships.

We appreciate your understanding. Please take extra caution and protect yourselves at this most difficult time in world history.
