Summer Institute Application

Applicants must be high school students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year who are Ohio residents.

Students are selected through a competitive application process. The student application consists of a Student Information form, a Student Essay, and one Teacher Recommendation. The top scoring students will be selected for the program. A submitted application does not guarantee participation.

The application period for Summer Institute is January 1 to April 17.

Those chosen for the program will be awarded partial scholarships. The partial scholarships lower the price to $526 for each attendee. The fee covers housing, meals and program tuition, including laboratory visits, insurance, chaperones, social activities, equipment costs and much more.
