Summer Science Institute
The Summer Science Institute (SSI) is a free
six-week residential experience for high school students. The program gives
students an understanding of biological/physical research while they learn
about college life and strengthen their writing and math skills. More than five
hundred students have benefited from this program since its inception in 1990.
Students are paired up and mentored on a
specific project that entails in-depth, hands-on research conducted by the
students. Once the research has been completed, each group writes a research
report and presents its project and findings at a final Research Symposium.
Students also meet twice during the week for discussions on topics ranging from
scientific subjects to crafting college applications.
There is no cost to SSI participants. Room,
board, books and materials are provided by the program.
Students who are African American, Hispanic,
Native American, Southeast Asian, Native Alaskan or Native Pacific Islander, OR
who are from low-income homes, OR will be the first in their family to attend
college are strongly encouraged to apply.
For information on what students have
researched in the past, please visit this page.
Important Tips for Successful Applications:
1) Apply only to programs that you are eligible for.
2) If you have any uncertainties about applying for the program e-mail the
contact person before you apply to the program.
3) Once you’ve submitted your application you may want to e-mail the
program coordinate to let him/her know that you’ve applied.
4) Meet all the Deadlines posted.
5) Make sure to give your recommender(s) adequate time
to write a polished letter of recommendation for you. Give them as much
information as possible about you, the program you are applying to and how
you see this program as beneficial to your academic and career
6) If possible, send your recommender a copy of your resume and personal
statement or essay questions.
7) Allow yourself enough time to gather required documentation such as
official transcripts, medical insurance coverage forms, if needed. Some
residential programs require that you have medical insurance in order to
participate. If this is the case make sure you have this complete well
before you begin the program.
8) Apply to more than one program.
9) Decide whether or not you can commit time to this program. I do NOT
recommend taking a summer course with an internship.
10) Familiarize yourself with the program. Avoid blanket statements such as, “I
want to be accepted to a summer research program at MIT because it’s a
good school.” Instead talk about specific research being done at that
institution and in this program.
11) Last but definitely not least, bring your applications to MESA or a STEM
faculty member for review and recommendations.
