Miami is no longer accepting applications for the 2020 Summer Scholars Program.

 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.

You must also have your high school counselor 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)
  • If English is not your native language, please submit your TOEFL scores or a letter from your English teacher certifying your English language skills. Please note that for non-native English speakers, either a college aptitude test score or certification of English language skills is required — not both.

These items may be uploaded electronically via the application or sent to:
