                                 SUMMER PROGRAMS BULLETIN
This Summer Programs Bulletin serves only as a means of circulating information received at the College & Career
Center, not as a program endorsement, and it is not a comprehensive list of all possible summer programs. Entries
are listed in alphabetical order. Some programs are highly selective, accepting only those students who meet
specific academic standards; other programs are open to those who apply and pay the fees on a first-come/first-
served basis. Some programs offer scholarships which usually have an earlier application deadline. A sample
application/brochure for each program may be available in the College & Career Center. To receive an application
and/or current program information, call the number listed at the end of the entry or visit the website. We
continue to receive literature on a variety of summer programs. Please stop by the CCC to learn about them.

Special thanks to Leslie Afzali for updating this list!
