BU is pleased to announce that Summer Pathways will take place July
12-19, 2013. Summer Pathways, now in its seventh year, is an
exciting seven-day, residential program for high school girls
entering their junior or senior year in September 2013. The program
targets girls from Boston area high schools who show promise and/or
interest in science, math, or engineering. The year, for the first
time, the program will include whale watching and an overnight on the
historic Roseway, a 137 schooner built in 1925. Tuition is $675 and
includes room, board, all travel and activities. Scholarships of up
to $575 are available to students with demonstrated financial need.
Participants will live in a BU dormitory, and during this week, will
have the opportunity to engage in many hands-on science activities
and gain first hand knowledge of a wide range of careers in STEM
disciplines. Participants also visit laboratories, listen to career
panels, visit local companies, and learn about the college admissions
process. On the Roseway, they will learn about marine life, the
physics of sailing, and be active participants alongside the crew.
Information about the program can be found at:
http://www.bu.edu/lernet/spathways. Students who would like to
participate in the program should complete and submit an online
application via the website. Each applicant will be required to
obtain two recommendations from past or present teachers. Teacher

2013. If you have any questions, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
