The 2014 AIM Program began on Sunday, July 6 with 35 academically talented students from the U.S., Bahamas, Jamaica and Mexico. The AIM Program simulates a real college experience and assists students of color with making a successful transition from high school to college. Monday thru Thursday, students attend freshmen-level classes in the STEM fields. On Fridays, students tour various companies in engineering, business, computer technology and the medical field to gain further understanding from professionals in their intended field of study. During the evenings and on weekends, students have homework, prepare for tests as well as participate in many extra-curricular activities on and off campus, i.e. bowling, movies, camp, shopping, sports, etc.

Scholarships to Kettering will be awarded to students who rank in the top 25 at the end of the program. The program ends on Friday, August 8 with the AIM Awards Banquet being held on Thursday, August 7 at 6 p.m. in the International Room.
