UNITE Program


UNITE is a four-to-six week, pre-collegiate, academic summer program for talented high school students from groups historically underrepresented and underserved in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).  

Funded by the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) and administered by the Technology Student Association (TSA), the UNITE program is designed to encourage and help prepare students to pursue college-level studies, and ultimately, careers in engineering and related STEM fields. More information about the AEOP can be found at www.usaeop.com.

Below are the 2016-2017 UNITE sites with director contact information. For details about a specific site, please contact the site director. For general information about the UNITE program, contact Hillary Lee, toll free at (888) 860-9000 or by email at hlee@tsaweb.org.
