Dear Educator,

Please tell your most promising juniors about one of the oldest and best pre-college opportunities: the Summer Science Program.

It’s immersive, collaborative research in either:

  • Astrophysics at New Mexico State Univ., Univ. of Colorado Boulder, or Univ. of North Carolina Chapel Hill
  • Biochemistry at Purdue or Indiana Univ.
  • Genomics at Indiana Univ.

It’s free to apply. The deadline is March 3rd. Admission is selective but holistic, considering preparation, motivation, personal or family obstacles faced, and how much the experience will benefit the student.

Generous grants meet 100% of need including travel, so

SSP is free for lower-income families.

Please encourage your top juniors, and your colleagues, to learn more at

“SSP is a gem! It expands young minds in ways that schools cannot. Students receive cutting-edge experiential learning, meet the highest caliber of professionals, and build an international network of amazing and talented peers.

Your student will go from great to outstanding, returning more mature, confident, and a true leader.”
