The GEMS 2024 Application is now closed. Please keep us in mind for the 2025 summer.

Please read the directions at the beginning of the application before filling it out. Some key points- GEMS is for rising 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students. You must (no exceptions), live and attend school within 60 miles of Penns campus to participate. Applicants outside of that 60 mile radius will not be considered. Please email to the Penn GEMS email, the camper waiver directly to after submitting your application. Please have your chosen teacher recommender email the teacher recommendation directly to the same email. Applications are complete once we have the application form, waiver, and teacher recommendation. As a reminder, if you have participated in GEMS in the past, you will not be considered, as campers can only participate one time.

The deadline to submit an application for Penn GEMS is Monday March 4th. Applications after this date will not be considered.
