The Application Process  

Our Summer 2024 residential programs are designed for rising juniors and seniors. We are looking for talented, highly motivated students who are passionate about the subject area and who are ready for a rigorous program.

  • Personal statement: A short statement (maximum of 250 words) describing the student’s passion for the subject matter, motivation for enrolling in the program, and what they hope to gain from the experience.
