High-achieving high school students can experience university life, earn college credits, and get a head start on their post-secondary educations through Rutgers University’s Summer Scholars Program.
Summer Scholars, who must be high school juniors or younger, may take up to two Rutgers courses during Summer Session II (June 24-August 1), or Session III (July 8-August 14).
Students entering their junior or senior year of high school in fall 2013, who have a minimum GPA of 3.0, may apply to take introductory-level college courses. Exceptional students younger than 16 are considered on a case-by-case basis and are required to be interviewed and submit a PSAT or SAT score.
Scholarships covering 20 percent of the course tuition are available to students with a recommendation letter from their guidance counselor.
