To be considered for the Summer Scholars program, you must apply online. Please note you will be asked to submit a 200- to 300-word short statement on the application regarding your interest in the Summer Scholars Program. The application deadline has been extended to May 16.

You must also have your high school counselor send the following items:

  • High School transcript
  • Letter of recommendation
  • Record of any college aptitude test (PLAN, PSAT, ACT, SAT)
