The Natural Sciences Division of Loyola University Maryland in collaboration with Roland Park Country School(RPCS) runs one summer of a three year program for girls from city schools, who have aptitude and interest in STEM. The program spans five to six weeks. Each week has a different STEM theme and is run by the associated science department. Once a week the participants attend and participate in the luncheon seminars given by the undergraduate researchers in Loyola's Hauber program. The program topics include computer science, engineering, physics, chemistry and mathematics. Some years biology participates and the students are given lectures with laboratory experiences.

National Center for Women & Information Technology Aspirations Program
The computer science department of Loyola University Maryland, in collaboration with University of Maryland College Park and University of Maryland Baltimore County, have partnered with the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) to organize an award for high school girls (grades 9-12) interested in computing. Award winners and runners-up will be selected from high schools in Maryland and Delaware, and every applicant will be considered for the national award. Applicants will be judged on these qualities: aptitude and interest in information technology and computing, leadership skills, academic history, and plans for post-secondary education. All high school girls are encouraged to apply. Due date for applications will be accepted until November 4, 2015. Visit Aspirations for more info.
