Summer Program Support

Each summer, CINSAM hosts a variety of STEM camps and academies for 2nd through 12th grade students. The summer programs are hosted by NKU faculty and staff, as well as qualified community members on topics in STEM.

CINSAM accepts proposals each December for those interested in receiving Ashland Grant funding to host a STEM program at NKU in the following summer.
