The NC Teamship Showcase launches virtually. The second week is hosted on the NCSSM-Durham campus.

NC Teamship Showcase students will be overseen by NCSSM summer program counselors. Students will be housed (with a roommate) on campus in NCSSM’s residence halls and eat on campus. The daytime team meetings may make use of business incubator or entrepreneurial spaces in Durham or Research Triangle Park.
- Meals are included.
- Students are housed in the campus residence halls. Housing is provided at no cost.
- NCSSM Summer Programs staff supervise students.
- NCSSM Summer Programs provides optional evening activities.
- Student vehicles are permitted on campus, but students will need to turn in their keys to security. Students may be dropped off, or summer programs staff can arrange pick-up/drop-off from the Durham train or bus station.
- To remove transportation barriers, students may request an additional modest stipend to offset transportation costs to/from Durham, in the application process. This is in addition to the stipend all participants receive.
Accepted students will receive more details about housing and meals, and families will complete paperwork required for students living on campus, which includes details on medical accommodations, learning accommodations, allergies, etc. Contact Chris Thomas (email@example.com) with questions.
