Carnegie Mellon summer Pre-College program options for summer 2021Due to the ongoing considerations related to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are preparing plans should we be required to alter the delivery of our programs:

  • Summer Session, students take two full-length Carnegie Mellon courses in a variety of disciplines, ranging from Computer Science, History to Music Technology.

  • Computer Science Scholars, provides students who are from traditionally underrepresented communities in the field of computer science an opportunity to receive exposure to computing and additional computer science pre-requisites. 
  • AI4All @ Carnegie Mellon, provides opportunities for students from underrepresented communities to study artificial intelligence with full-time faculty, staff and researchers who are leaders in the field.

Howard University:  The Karsh STEM Scholars Program (KSSP) is designed to attract and prepare high-achieving high school students for careers in STEM. Students who are selected for the program are expected to ultimately pursue, a PhD, or a combined MD/PhD. Students are required to major in a STEM-related discipline. The purpose of the KSSP is to challenge students through rigorous preparation and to create an environment/community of interdependent scholars who are focused on academic excellence. The program will also focus on building a global perspective to prepare its students to live, prosper and contribute to a world that is increasingly diverse and global in nature.
The KSSP presents an opportunity for academically talented students interested in STEM fields to become thinkers, researchers, educators and leading practitioners. Howard University is a leader in producing Black STEM PhDs. However, according to the research conducted by the American Institutes for Research, Black students complete doctoral degrees in STEM fields overall at disproportionately low rates. This program will expand and extend the reach of Howard University’s leadership role in producing more students immersed in science, technology, engineering and mathematics that will change the landscape in higher education.

The Karsh STEM Scholars Program will incorporate key components such as mentoring, tutoring, in-group support, high expectations, financial support, personal advising and counseling, summer bridge, family support and study groups, which research has shown leads to student success in such programs. To be considered, students must have an overall grade point average of 3.0 or higher, at least a “B” average in college-preparatory science and mathematics courses, SAT scores: at least 600 on SAT math and a minimum combined score of at least 1250, ACT scores: minimum composite score of at least 26, ACT math score of at least 25 and be a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident.
