Frequently Asked Questions

JADE FAQ

What does a day in the JADE program entail?

In the morning, students receive instruction based on a web development curriculum for beginners. During the day, students will be visiting offices and meeting founders and other employees who will speak to them about the startup world. In the evening, after dinner and discussion, students will be taken on excursions in different parts of the city.

What is the program fee?

The program fee is $100.00 per student and covers food, transportation, and night activities during the week. Our application process is completely need-blind.  We are able to offer financial aid support to students with a demonstated need.

Who can apply to participate in JADE?

All current first-year undergraduate students in BC, CC, and SEAS are eligible to apply for the program.  All majors are encouraged to apply, as we want to focus on students who have had minimal exposure to the startup and tech ecosystem of New York!
