Juntos Podemos 2016

Background

“Juntos Podemos” (Together We Can) is a program sponsored by SHPE@UVa that encourages and motivates Hispanic students to graduate high school and prepares them to pursue a four-year college degree in engineering, science or math. This program invites applications from Virginian high school students of primarily Hispanic heritage, though other underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply as well. Accepted applicants will be hosted overnight by a current UVa student, and will spend the program duration participating in various engineering activities. No fee is required to participate in this program.
