Summer Ventures accepting students

January 14, 2014 

The deadline for application to Summer Ventures in Science and Mathematics is Jan. 31. Summer Ventures is a cost-free, statewide program providing enrichment and research opportunities to academically talented high school students.

Summer Ventures in Science and Mathematics brings rising juniors and seniors together in residential settings for four weeks of intensive study. Sponsored by the University of North Carolina (UNC) system, Summer Ventures is held on four UNC campuses across the state. The program provides high-achieving North Carolina students with the potential to excel in mathematics and science an opportunity to immerse themselves in investigative classes and research in a residential, collaborative learning environment. Students design, conduct and share their own research projects during the course of the program.

This is the 30th year of the program, coordinated by the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics in Durham. The program is cost-free to accepted students, with no tuition or fees. Approximately 250 high school juniors and seniors will participate in the program during June and July of this year.

Summer Ventures is open to all current high school sophomores and juniors whose custodial parents or guardians are residents of North Carolina. Students are selected on the basis of proven academic ability, motivation in STEM fields of study and emotional maturity.
