Summer Science and Engineering Program for Girls at Smith College
 (students entering 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade in fall of 2011)

July 3 - 30, 2011

The Smith Summer Science and Engineering Program (SSEP) is a four-week residential program for exceptional young women with strong interests in science, engineering, and medicine.  The SSEP has a selective admissions process, based on academic performance in middle and/or high school, a written essay and a teacher recommendation.  The program welcomes applications from students with all levels of previous science training.  Students need not have taken advanced science courses but must have a strong record of academic achievement, a high level of motivation and a willingness to explore.  Partial to full financial aid is available to a limited number of participants and is awarded solely on the basis of financial need.  More than half the participants in last year's program received financial aid.  All the information to apply to the program and financial aid can be found on their website:
