SHINE is designed for high school students (rising sophomores through seniors) who already have a strong track record of independence and STEM engagement (unweighted GPA > 3.4). SHINE is nothing like summer school, as students are active participants on a professor’s research team with one mentor dedicated to them for 20 hours per week. Additionally, students form the SHINE cohort, meeting weekly over lunch to have fun and build key skills.

SHINE applications are due by February 17, 2020, for early decision admittance and scholarship consideration, at the fee of $6,300. The due date for regular admittance is March 30, 2020, for the fee of $6,500. To submit application or program fees, please visit our payments page.
