The 2021 GSA Summit will take place virtually July 20th-21st, 2021.
We are excited to announce the launch of our 4th annual Global STEM Alliance Summit at the New York Academy of Sciences!
From July 20th-21st, 2021, over 200 of the most promising Young Members of the Academy—a cohort representing over 50 countries—will gather at the Academy’s headquarters in New York City. Participating students have all successfully completed a Global STEM Alliance mentoring program, and many of them will be meeting their mentors face-to-face for the first time at the Summit. Together the students and their mentors will exchange ideas, explore career options, connect cross-culturally, and discuss the future of innovation and STEM.
