To Whom It May Concern: 


I hope you are doing well and enjoying the start of spring. My name is Kaylee Bagdan and I am a Biology student at Skidmore College, currently working and doing research under Professor David Domozych. We are excited to announce the return of the Young Scholars Cell Biology Institute (YSCBI) this summer as an outreach program under Professor Domozych’s National Science Foundation’s recent grant. We are reaching out to you due to your connections with early high school students, the sciences, and your ability to connect young individuals to opportunities through our local high schools.   


The Young Scholars Cell Biology Institute is a program incorporating a multi-disciplinary approach to introducing the next generation of students to a variety of STEM related subjects. These subjects range from genomics to computer science to cell biology to environmental science to neuroscience to biochemistry and beyond. One of the highlights of the program is allowing students to have hands-on experiences with true high technology, such as confocal, scanning electron and transmission electron microscopy, at Skidmore’s Microscopy Imaging Center (SMIC). Other highlights include hands on experiments with experts in the field, a tour of the Tang Teaching Museum, and an Environmental Science talk through Skidmore College’s 150 acres of wooded forest called Northwoods. To learn more about what our program entails, please visit our website here and our Instagram account we recently launched @young_scholars_cell_bio.  


The program will run as a day camp from 8:45 am until 4:45 pm daily from Monday, July 10th until Friday, July 14th, 2023. Students will begin and end their days in SMIC and be picked up at the entrance of Palamountain Hall. In order to make this program as accessible as possible to students of all backgrounds, the entire program will be free of charge, including daily free lunches. Students are only responsible for determining transportation to and from campus on their own. This program is primarily for students entering their sophomore or junior year of high school; however, we will consider other high school students if space permits. If there are overflowing applications, the camp may be extended to include a second cohort of students a separate week in July. Our mission is simple; we want to make science accessible to everyone. 


In order to apply to the Young Scholars Cell Biology Institute, we request that each student fills out an application and submits a letter of recommendation from a science teacher, an advisor, or a guidance counselor to the program. The letters of recommendation should be submitted directly from the recommender to Professor Domozych at [email protected] and include a description of why the student should be accepted into the program. The applications will be reviewed by myself, Professor Domozych, and the staff of YSCBI.  Students are also requested to fill out a photo consent form upon acceptance as well as a lab safety handout.  


I would like to reassure students and staff that this is an opportunity worth considering, as I myself am an alumna from the 2016 session of the program. The program allowed me to truly create lasting friendships, sparked my interest in STEM, allowed me to begin thinking about college, and led to me pursuing my career in the field. I feel honored to be returning to this program as the lead student researcher spearheading the program for the second year in a row and would be happy to help answer any questions ([email protected]) alongside Professor Domozych ([email protected]). The staff plans to pull together an informational video in the coming days to answer any frequently asked questions.  


I am also happy to answer questions directly over Zoom upon request or talk with potential students who are interested in learning more. Please contact me directly if you are interested in doing so at [email protected].   


Lastly, attached above are flyers to print at each of your respective schools if you so desire. If you also would like to spread the word to others, we encourage you to forward this email to other colleagues that may also be interested in recommending this program to students. Thank you so much.  


Best regards,  

Kaylee Bagdan

BU Summer Journalism Academy

Dear Colleague:

It's that time when your students search for summer programs that tap into their interests and begin the next chapter in their lives of aligning them with their future career goals. 

At Boston University Summer Journalism Academy (BUSJ), students not only have an opportunity to have award-winning working journalists, they also have the chance to experience Boston University and the city of Boston. 
For 15 years, Boston University College of Communication has offered this program to teach high school students in-person and virtually core skills in news reporting, interviewing, and writing, focusing on hands-on experience in and around Boston and their home communities.

Our photojournalism program taught by former Boston Globe photographer, Steve Haines, prepares students, like Taylor Coester  (a BUSJ alum and now a BU student), to work alongside journalists in capturing the best photo for their stories. Parents and students enjoy hearing that no third-party vendors are involved, and they can experience an authentic pre-college experience at a college on their list.
For students living on-campus, they have the opportunity to:

  • Meet with a Boston University's representative to discuss the college admissions process
  • Explore what it's like living in a residence hall and studying in a university environment
  • Experience Boston museums, historical sites, and neighborhoods during their free time

Students decide if they would like to attend our program in-person or virtually. Our three-week on-campus session starts June 26. Our two-week virtual sessions begin June 19, July 3, and July 17.

BU Summer Journalism Academy

Dear Colleague:

Happy new year! 

With the new year, we know that you and many of your students are thinking about summer.

Do you have a student thinking about a career in communications or enjoy writing? We have just the thing: the Boston University Summer Journalism Academy, hosted by Boston University College of Communication.

For 13 years, our program has taught high school students in-person and virtually core skills in news reporting, interviewing, and writing, focusing on hands-on experience in and around Boston and their home communities. Taught by award-winning working journalists such as Pulitzer Prize winner Lara Salahi and Rochelle Sharpe, students learn how to follow facts and get to the heart of stories affecting communities. 

We challenge students to step outside their comfort zone – and experience life as a working journalist. In the past, our students spoke with policymakers, reported from a massive immigration march, and highlighted issues affecting teens during the pandemic. They learned how to interview strangers, ask probing questions and assemble it in a concise story on deadline.

Students learn practical skills during their sessions and will receive a taste of how a newsroom operates.

The academy now offers two options: an on-campus residential program over three weeks for students with journalism experience and a learn-from-home program over two weeks for all experience levels. For students interested in photography, we offer a special photojournalism track for both.
Applications for the on-campus session June 26 to July 14 are due on April 14. Applications for learn-at-home sessions starting June 19, July 3, and July 17 are due on May 5.
Best of all, students will save $400 off the full fee for the on-campus academy or $200 off the full fee of the learn-from-home academy if they apply, are accepted, and registered in full by March 3.

We hope you will share this opportunity with your students. To learn more about the Summer Journalism Academy, visit

Dear Morck:

Happy New Year! I know it’s only January, but it’s actually time to start thinking about summer. Here at Columbia, plans are well underway to welcome a new cohort of students to our Pre-College programs this summer.

Through our Immersion program, students in grades 9-12 have an opportunity to try their hand at over 90 subjects normally reserved for college. For example: Constitutional Law, Investment Portfolio Management, Introduction to Material Science and Nanotechnology, and Introduction to Architectural Design and Theory, to name a few. By getting a taste of these subjects while in high school, students can save time and energy by honing their college interests at a young age.

I have had the pleasure of serving as a mentor to past Pre-College Immersion students who represent Columbia as ambassadors to prospective families. One recurring theme I hear from these ambassadors is how the program changed them in ways beyond simply learning more about a subject area. It’s these ancillary results that I believe are the true, hidden benefits of the program. Students return to their schools and thrive in new ways as a direct result of the maturity and confidence they gained from participating in this program. Honestly, I could go on, but I will leave you with this quote:

I've gained a new understanding of my passions as well as what kind of education I would like to pursue in the future. Outside of academics, this program has helped me establish critical life skills such as critical thinking and active participation. Prior to this program, I was always overly conscious of saying the right things and only participating when I knew I was definitely correct. Now I know that it's completely ok to be wrong and that the purpose of a class is to learn from mistakes, not just to prove your knowledge.

 –Yuna N., former Neuroscience and the Law student

Here is a link to our most recent flyer which will give you all the relevant information about our summer program. You will see that we offer both online and in-person options. For more detailed information, please visit  Summer Immersion: Online to learn about online study options and for on-campus study, please visit Summer Immersion: New York City. The early registration deadline is February 3. 

We will also be hosting information sessions featuring several of our Ambassadors on January 26 at 8PM ET and February 2 at 8PM ET

Greetings from Denison University and the Summer TUTTI Performing Arts camp!

We’re excited to introduce our new 8-day residential summer high school intensive in dancemusic, and theatre. At Summer TUTTI, students live and learn with peers from across the disciplines and across the country. They’ll deepen their skills and talents in their chosen area while exploring new ways of making art, guided by Denison professors as well as nationally-acclaimed professional artists and ensembles, Third Coast Percussion, string quartet ETHEL, and members from Available Light Theatre.

We welcome dancers (all styles), instrumentalists (strings, woodwinds, brass, piano, and percussion), composers, and students interested in all aspects of theatre-making (acting, directing, designing). Current 9th, 10th, and 11th graders are eligible to apply. Financial support is available for families with need. This year’s program runs from June 24 to July 1, 2023.

Please encourage your best students to apply! For more information and a link to the online application, go to The priority application deadline is March 1, 2023.
