About Summer Pathways

Dates: July 7-14, 2017

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

Participants will meet undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and members of industry from across disciplines, and have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and find out more about careers in various STEM fields.

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 a unique experience for young women interested in a STEM career.

Eligibility: Young women from high schools in the greater Boston area entering their junior or senior year in Fall 2017 and who show promise and/or interest in science, technology or engineering.

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