(Bismarck, ND) -- Native American Students across North Dakota are invited to join a STEM program that is seeing expansion under state leadership. 

The Indians Into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (INSTEM) program, once a summer instruction program for only some Native American students, will be expanded to make all North Dakota Native students ages six through twelve eligible to apply. INSTEM, hosted through Valley City State University, is currently accepting applications for students and will do so until April 15th. Priority consideration applications must be submitted by February 28th for consideration. 

 “Since its inception six years ago, INSTEM has offered a wonderful opportunity for Native American students to explore subjects in science, technology, engineering and math, and experience what it’s like to live away from home on a college campus,” said Kirsten Baesler, the North Dakota State Superintendent.
