Our Brown Scholars program is a new 3-year intensive focused on the intersection of computer science and science. It is tuition-free thanks to a generous grant from the Helen Gurley Brown Trust.


The program has 3 components:

1) 120 hours of coursework across 3 classes: Intro to Programming, Intro to Databases, and Intro to Data Visualization.

Girls who successfully complete the 120 hours of coursework are eligible for the second component.

2) A 9-month paid internship in either computational research or applied computer programming within a division at AMNH.

Girls who successfully complete the internship are eligible for the third component.

3) College and career colloquium:  a series of field trips and workshops focused on the varied academic and professional opportunities in the world of computer science.


We are offering information sessions on the following dates:

Friday, 2/17/2017 from 4:00 pm–5:00 pm
