SSP is an independent nonprofit, the only summer program operated, governed, and largely funded by its own alumni and former faculty … eloquent testimony to its impact on young people for more than six decades. Many alumni call it “the educational experience of a lifetime.”
SSP is open to current high school juniors (and a few truly exceptional sophomores) who have completed the pre-requisites by summer, and will be at least 15 years old, but not yet 19, during the program. (Too young? We can remind you later.)
Follow SSP on Instagram for application reminders and updates.
