Summer Institute Application

COVID-19 Update (4/15/2020): 

As a result of OSU canceling all on-campus events through the summer (including closing dorms), OSC has made the difficult decision to cancel both the Summer Institute (SI) and the Young Women’s Summer Institute (YWSI).

In making this decision, we evaluated a series of options, including converting the programs to a virtual or non-residential experience or rescheduling it for later in the summer.  We understand the disappointment that potential participants will feel as a result of this decision.  As part of this extraordinary situation, we intend to retain all applications submitted by April 17 for inclusion in the candidate pool next year.  Any student who is currently a Junior that submits an application for SI this year will be eligible for participation next summer even though Seniors traditionally aren’t eligible for the program. The same procedure will be in effect for girls who are currently 7th graders that submit an application for this year’s YWSI.

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.
