2021 Exelon Foundation STEM Leadership Academy Application Period is OPEN!!!

The Exelon Foundation is excited to announce that applications are now open for the 2021 Exelon Foundation STEM Leadership Academy! The summer 2021Exelon STEM Leadership Academy is a free, week-long, residential* program for 10th and 11th grade girls interested in STEM to learn from women working in STEM and other leaders; explore sustainability, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and climate change; and connect with like-minded peers. The Academy concludes with an energy challenge and a chance to win great prizes! Each participant will also receive an iPad to use for Academy activities and to take home at the end of the week.

Some of our past participants have said:

“Thank you for this opportunity. This week has been the best experience of my life!”

“I learned to own my own energy and to be my own person. If I am confident in what I do AND act, I can do anything I set my mind to. There are so many more jobs I can look into, especially since many industries are looking for more women. It was incredibly inspiring.”

Young women who are interested in STEM, in 10th and 11th grade (class of 2022 and 2023), and live in Northern Illinois, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C./Baltimore areas are encouraged to apply before April 25th, 2021.
