Northwestern Health Sciences University receives $15,000 grant

science-academy-studentsFebruary 22, 2012 — Northwestern Health Sciences University received a $15,000 grant from the Carolyn Foundation to help fund its Science Academy. The annual Science Academy is held each summer for 50 to 75 middle school and high school students from the Twin Cities.

“The executive director of the Carolyn Foundation visited the academy in 2011 and was very impressed with the program,” said Tolu Oyelowo, DC, associate professor and Science Academy coordinator.

The 2012 Science Academy will be held Aug. 13-17. Northwestern students participate by volunteering to mentor a Science Academy student. Mentors keep in touch with their students throughout the year, and help promote the program.

The Science Academy aims to build relationships with diverse

communities, to offer life-changing experiences for students who may not have role models in the sciences, and to enhance cultural competency at Northwestern.

It is a demonstration of Northwestern’s commitment to supporting young people in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area who are interested in pursuing higher education. The week-long academy provides students with a hands-on learning environment and mentoring in an effort to encourage them to pursue careers in natural health care or other health sciences and technology fields.

At the Science Academy, students may:

  • study X-rays
  • learn about the skeletal system
  • view CT scans and MRIs
  • take throat cultures
  • study first aid
  • get certified in CPR, and more.
