Summer Programs for Diversity

Summer Programs for Diversity

July 1 - August 11, 2017

If you're entering your senior year of high school and are considering careers in engineering, science and other math-based disciplines, you may be interested in SAMS: The Summer Academy for Mathematics and Science. Consider spending six weeks in our rigorous summer program focusing on technical areas of study. You'll build academic and personal skills required for admission to competitive colleges and universities and take part in fun and exciting summer activities. You must be 16 years old to participate in the SAMS program.

If you're interested in being considered for one of our diversity programs outside of SAMS (see below), students must be in high school, have completed their sophomore year and be 16 to 18 years old (born between August 11, 1998 and July 1, 2001). This doesn't apply to commuters in the AP/EA program. No other exceptions will be made. 

A limited number of rising high school seniors may be selected to participate in:

Our Pre-College programs will show you what life at Carnegie Mellon is all about - from the classroom to what's happening on weekends. You'll meet people from all over the world, be inspired by our world-renowned faculty, take part in the excitement of campus and have the opportunity to explore the city of Pittsburgh.

There will be no tuition, housing or dining fees for students selected to attend Summer Programs for Diversity.
