The NJCSTM offers a Group Summer Scholars Research Program (GSSRP) , a 6-week, hands-on research experience aimed at attracting and developing talented students who are interested in pursuing an education in a STEM field. Upon entering the program students are divided into small research teams that are paired with a faculty mentor conducting actual scientific research. Students learn how to conduct basic and applied research during this program and develop a true appreciation of the scientific research process while contributing first hand to the acquisition of new scientific knowledge. Students engage in weekly meetings with faculty and team members to solve problems and discuss results, novel ideas and the latest scientific literature. Participants who complete the entire 6 week program receive a formal "Certificate of Achievement" from NJCSTM in recognition of their accomplishment.
