Summer Program Opportunities

Internship and higher ed programs are a great way to spend your summer!

With camps, you’ll get to experience life on a college campus, explore new and exciting fields you may want to pursue as college majors, and make friendships with students from other schools.  Programs are FREE to students and include transportation and meals.

You’ll want to act soon, though!  Deadlines for summer programs come early in the year, and you don’t want to miss out.  Check out our directory of summer programs below.  Be sure to read the qualifications carefully — some programs are only accepting students from certain schools or grade levels.
