University of Maryland Young Scholars Program

University of Maryland Young Scholars Program
July 13–August 1, 2008

The Young Scholars Program is a great way for rising high school juniors and seniors to earn college credit, pursue academic interests, explore career opportunities, and discover university life at Maryland. During three weeks of intellectual exploration, students preview the college experience, study with new friends who share similar interests, and engage with some of the University's best faculty in a dynamic, challenging classroom environment.

Students of University of Maryland alumni may submit their applications beginning February 1!
(Non-alumni students may submit applications beginning February 18.)

How the Program Works: Students enroll in a 3-credit introductory course that includes career discovery through field trips or guest speakers. The program is a great introduction to the University of Maryland. Participants benefit from Maryland's vast resources, including libraries, computer and instructional labs, and recreational, residential, and dining facilities. Upon successful completion of this three-week program, students earn 3 college credits that post to their University of Maryland transcript.

The program is open to rising high school juniors and seniors who have an academic average of 3.0 or better. The application process includes submission of the application, high school transcript, and a letter of recommendation.
