How to Apply

To be considered for the Summer Scholars Program, you must apply online. You will be asked to submit a 200- to 300-word statement about your interest in the program.

Your high school counselor must send the following items:

  • High School transcript (including current-year schedule)
  • Letter of recommendation
  • Record of any college aptitude test (Pre-ACT, PSAT, ACT, SAT) (Test scores are optional.)
  • If English is not your native language, please submit your TOEFL scores or a letter from your English teacher certifying your English language skills. For non-native English speakers, either a college aptitude test score or certification of English language skills is required — not both.
