Your generous donation will help keep this life-changing opportunity open to tomorrow’s leaders from all family backgrounds.
Unlike most colleges, our admissions process is completely need-blind. We admit applicants who will benefit from an intense immersion in collaborative science research.
Providing that experience costs approximately $8,000 each. These brilliant, hard-working young people are worth the investment! Some parents can afford to make it. But many cannot, especially with college looming.
Your Annual Fund donation allows us to keep SSP affordable for all. We guarantee to meet the demonstrated need of every admitted applicant with generous financial aid grants. Every summer, those from low income families pay only what they can afford. In 2022, 67 deserving participants received financial aid. Net of financial aid, program fees cover only about half of our budget.
