Northern Marianas College's Project PROA (Promotion Retention Opportunities Advancement) is proud to announce the upcoming Camp PROA, a two-week summer program that prepares high school students for college success while allowing them to strengthen their ties to their cultural heritage with various activities and field trips.
The program is open to high school juniors, seniors, and recent graduates who self-identify as Pacific Islander or Asian American, per grant requirements. Interested individuals must be U.S. citizens to participate. Camp PROA is aimed at helping students be college and career ready through various engaging activities and opportunities in STEM fields and more.
The camp will be held on Northern Marianas College's campus from July 3 - July 14, 2023 on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota, simultaneously. Participation in the camp is absolutely free, with breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks provided as well. The camp will conclude with a trip to Managaha Island and Saipan for the Camp PROA Banquet.
Project PROA is working to expand its partnership with agencies across the CNMI to improve student college and career readiness by providing students with engaging activities and opportunities in various STEM fields. Participants will engage in academic and career exploration sessions in the morning and cultural activities in the afternoon.
Priority will be given to students who submit a Fall 2023 Admissions Application (accessible at www.marianas.edu) by May 31, 2023.
Project PROA is a federally-funded program under the U.S. Department of Education’s Asian American Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution grants and serves both high school and college students.
