Student Application

Below is the SATELLITE 2021 application for current high school sophomores. The application consists of four short answer essay questions. Students applying are encouraged to write their essay responses in a separate word document before submitting the application.

Recommendation Form

Students applying must also receive two recommendations on their behalf. Students can complete this step by sending the following link to their recommender and having them fill it out.  One recommendation must be from a school teacher, preferably a STEM teacher. Students can choose any non-family member (i.e. coach, counselor, pastor, etc.) for their second recommendation. Students are responsible for sharing this form with their recommenders and ensuring that the recommendations are submitted on time.

Counselor Application Form

Counselors should be current NC State University students. If you are interested in STEM outreach and are available continuously throughout camp and for some pre-training, please consider applying for this volunteer position.
