BU is pleased to announce that Summer Pathways will take place July
10-17, 2015. Summer Pathways, now in its ninth year, is an exciting
seven-day, residential program for high school girls entering their
junior or senior year in September 2015. The program targets girls
from Boston area high schools who show promise and/or interest in
science, math, or engineering. The program will include 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. In addition, each applicant is required to
obtain two recommendations from past or present teachers. Teacher
recommendations also should be submitted via the website. All
applications and letters of reference must be received by May 1, 2015.
If you have any questions, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
