YWSI 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 current 6th or 7th graders who are Ohio residents.

The application period for YWSI 2020 is January 1 to April 17.

Those chosen for the program will be awarded partial scholarships. The partial scholarships lower the price to $264 for each attendee. The fee covers housing, meals and program tuition, including laboratory visits, insurance, chaperones, social activities, equipment costs and much more.
