Clarkson School Young Scholars Program
The Clarkson School, a division of Clarkson University, will once again offer the Young Scholars Program during the summer of 2017. The week-long program will be held on Clarkson University's campus starting Sunday, July 23 through Saturday, July 29, 2017. This program is for motivated and talented high school sophomores, juniors, seniors and first year college students.

In general, The Young Scholars Program provides a unique summer experience for students. Consistent with Clarkson's overall focus on interdisciplinary education, students are given a problem to examine and solve from three different perspectives. This year's project is "True or False?? Preventing the Spread of Fake News on Social Media".

Application Deadlines:

The priority deadline to apply is April 1, 2017, and the regular deadline to apply is May 15, 2017. A completed application received by April 1st will be given priority consideration for admission. Selections for remaining openings will be made on a rolling basis after the regular application deadline of May 15th. Enrollment for Young Scholars is capped at 40 students.

Students who successfully complete the program and meet the admission requirements, will receive a $4,000 scholarship ($1,000 per year) towards tuition if they attend The Clarkson School or Clarkson University full time for their undergraduate education. Please note that $1,000 per year is the maximum scholarship amount a student can receive for attending Clarkson University summer programs, no matter how many programs he or she attends.
