 Contact information is below.
 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 cab@bu.edu.
