We are fortunate to be conducting our STEM Camp this year at San Diego State University from July 28-August 1, 2015. JROTC STEM has become a very popular and successful camp and each year the number of nominations and quality of applicants increases significantly. I have prepared the following guidance to assist you in determining if you qualify to apply. I have also attached a letter that you can use to inform your parents of your potential as a nominees and gain their initial approval before formal nominations are submitted to me.
Incoming seniors that have not attended STEM in prior years.
Incoming juniors that meet cadet eligibility.
Incoming seniors that attend last year’s STEM Camp (not likely, but possible)
For a cadet to be considered, you must submit the following complete packet:
Signed Parent letter (enclosed)
STEM Student nomination Form (attached)
JROTC Instructor letter of recommendation
Math/Science teacher letter of recommendation
In addition, all cadets must meet the following Cadet Eligibility:
3.25 or higher academic cumulative GPA (NOT JROTC GPA)
Strong interest in pursuing BS degree in STEM major
B or higher in all science and math courses (check transcripts)
Incoming Junior or Senior in SY '15-'16 (priority to Seniors 2016)
Enrolled in JROTC in SY '15-'16
Recommended by Math/Science Teacher
Must complete the entire week and stay in dorms at SDSU
Please note that based on the comments from last year's attendees and inquires from cadets throughout this year, I anticipate a huge interest on the STEM Camp and selection will be very competitive. Last year, all attending cadets averaged a 3.6 GPA with twenty-six cadets above a 4.0 GPA. If you feel very strongly about a cadet attending and for some circumstance their GPA dropped for a year of semester, please indicate it on your recommendation. Due to the number of selectees, we do not conduct an interview board so your letters are critical. Please ensure that your packets are complete and send all applications directly to COL Swann NLT May 21, 2015.
