What is STEM Signing Day?
The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Signing Day, presented by Boeing and Motorola Solutions Foundation celebrates the commitment of selected Chicago Public School high school seniors to pursue STEM degrees at some of the nation’s top colleges, universities and 2- year colleges.  These students will be applying their talents in pursuit of careers in STEM fields and putting themselves on the fast track for success. The goal is to celebrate the accomplishment of students who are currently under-represented in STEM fields and attending a CPS School.

What are the requirements of applicants?
Students apply to be a part of STEM Signing Day through the Chicago STEM Co-Op, a Chicago-based organization that convenes stakeholders in Chicago’s STEM ecosystem to address inequities in the STEM learning continuum by facilitating cross-sector knowledge building, collaboration, and collective action.

  • Students must affirm their plans to pursue a post-secondary degree in STEM or Aviation.
  • Students must have a letter of acceptance to a 2-year or 4-year college/university.
  • Students must complete the below application, detailing their academic and after-school experiences, personal goals and aspirations to pursue a STEM-related major and career pathway.
