NJCTS Tim Howard Leadership Academy

August 6 – 9, 2020
Rutgers University, Busch Campus
Piscataway, New Jersey


Rutgers University, the site at which the academy is held, has cancelled all summer programs because of the outbreak of COVID-19, and this includes the in-person academy. This was not a decision NJCTS had any say in, though we respect our partners at Rutgers University for the difficult decision they made in the best interest of everyone’s safety.

There is a bright side though. During the academy weekend, NJCTS will host the first ever Global TS Teen Summit! This entirely virtual event will allow you to hear from all the experts you would have heard from at the in-person academy—and then some. Even better, the educational sessions will be open to participants from anywhere on the planet!


*Eligible applicants are entering sophomore, junior or senior year of high school in the Fall of 2020 or will have completed senior year of high school by June 2020. View all requirements for the Academy
