In collaborative efforts between the Office of Academic Affairs and CMAST, High Ability is a 5-week program for qualified participants who have completed their high school junior year, have a 3.0 or above grade point average, and have scored a minimum of 20 on the ACT. The programs runs simultaneously with Grambling State University’s Summer Session II and allows the participants to earn six (6) college credit hours. There is also an intensive science component in which the students conduct science fair projects and present their research at the conclusion of the program. Through the CMAST grant funded by the National Science Foundation, each participant receives a $200 stipend. Qualified students that choose to return GSU as freshmen majoring in a STEM field (biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering technology, or mathematics and physics) may qualify for a $6,000 per year scholarship from CMAST*.
