About Summer Pathways

Dates: July 11-18, 2014

Summer Pathways is an opportunity for young women to discover the infinite possibilities that await them in scientific fields. Students arrive on a Friday afternoon, and for the duration of the seven-day program, live in a Boston University dormitory.

Program participants will meet with undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and members of industry from across disciplines, and will be given plenty of opportunity to ask questions and find out more information about various careers and the college admission process.

Combining field trips with hands-on activities, a taste of college life with valuable advice from career and college admissions experts, plus plenty of good old-fashioned fun, Summer Pathways is an experience quite unlike any other.

Eligibility: Young women from high schools in the greater Boston area who will be entering their junior or senior year in September 2014 and who show promise and/or interest in science, math or engineering.

Tuition: The cost of the seven-day program is $675 inclusive of room and board, an overnight on the Roseway, and all transportation and admission costs. Scholarships of up to $575 are available to qualified candidates with demonstrated financial need.
