The New Jersey Governor’s School in the Sciences (NJGSS) is a 3-week residential program where students are immersed in intense college-level research on the campus of Drew University. High school students who live in New Jersey are nominated by their schools and applications are submitted in the fall of the junior year for participation in the following summer. New Jersey’s Governor’s School in the Sciences is a very prestigious program for rising high school seniors.
