Apply to the Jumpstarting Aspiring Developers and Entrepreneurs (JADE) program to participate in this incredible opportunity in New York City! This week-long program will take place Sunday, January 12–Saturday, January 18. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, October 16.
All first-year students currently enrolled in Barnard College, Columbia College or Columbia Engineering are eligible for the program. Ideal participants are enthusiastic students who have had little exposure to the startup and tech worlds and students with varied backgrounds and interests. Students from all majors are encouraged to apply.
Please note that there is a $100 program fee, which covers food, housing, transit and activities. (Barnard students will have to pay an additional $50-$100 to cover the cost of early arrival winter housing.) We will be able to offer financial aid for accepted students with a demonstrated need. Please do not let cost prevent you from applying.
Submitting this application does NOT commit you to attending the program; if you are accepted, the option to attend is still your decision.
