Summer programs are a great way to learn more about an interest you have, learn a new skill, or learn about a career field/major! Follow these tips as you explore potential opportunities:
Start early - programs can have deadlines as early as November! Begin exploring summer opportunities at the end of 1st semester. Be sure to make note of application deadlines and requirements so you can adequately plan and notify teachers or counselors of any supporting documentation you may need.
Search for free or low cost programs - these often have a competitive application process but the programs can include amazing opportunities to conduct research, study internationally, attend college seminars or classes, and add leadership and skills to your resume
Look for programs with scholarships/financial aid - some programs offer need based and/or merit based scholarships. Programs with these opportunities often require you to apply well before the application deadline!
