The UNT WISE STEM! Summer Programs provide opportunities for young adults with disabilities, ages 14-22, to gain experience and insight in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Several programs are offered throughout the summer, with each focusing on different interests and activities. These multi-day and residential programs allow students to gain new and exciting skills, and learn about their practical application.

In order to apply for this program, participants will need to contact their Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Counselor through Texas Workforce Solutions (TWS). The VR Counselor is the point of contact in order to apply for the program. If you do not have a VR Counselor please contact the nearest Vocational Rehabilitation Services (VRS) office near you by referring to the VRS Directory.


Applications will begin being accepted from VR Counselors once UNT makes a decision regarding on-campus summer programming for Summer 2021.
