Summer STEM Fellowship Program

Bryn Mawr’s Summer STEM Fellowship program is open to rising seniors interested in real-world, hands-on, experiential research opportunities with some of Baltimore’s leading STEM institutions. The selected fellows meet throughout the year as a cohort to learn from each other and present a symposium-style poster to share with the community following their summer experience.
