Young Scholars Program for High School Students

June 18 - July 26, 2024


Become a Young Scholar

Highly-motivated students going into their junior or senior year of high school have the opportunity to explore college in an intensive summer program that includes university courses, advising, and meetings with key people on campus. In addition to college credit (upon successful completion of their classes), students leave with a hands-on experience of college life. Students are required to attend every class meeting. Travel and other summer programs must not occur during the dates of the Young Scholars Program.
