Colorado School of Mines SUMMET Summer session

Interested in an amazing opportunity for first generation, under-represented STEM students to attend a summer session at Colorado School of Mines.

Future Juniors and Seniors (current Sophomores and Juniors) to apply for  Colorado School of Mines Summer Multicultural Engineering Training Program (SUMMET).

Deadline to apply is April 1, 2015.

SUMMET is a science and engineering program combining course work, hands-on projects, industry tours, sporting activities and social events. It is an excellent stepping stone to the lifestyle and challenges of college. Students from across the nation will stay in Mines’ residence halls, experience life as a college student, and receive instruction in trigonometry & calculus, chemistry, geology, computer science, physics and basic to advanced engineering concepts.

We’re looking for high achieving students who are traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), who excel in math and science, are leaders amongst their peers, and may possibly be first-generation college-bound students.  We provide room & board – including all meals, course materials and access to all off-campus events.

Ladies, this one is for you!
