Summer Program Application

BWSI Summer Program Application Process

Application for the BWSI Summer Program is separate from the online course application. The Summer Program application will be available Mid-Late March 2019, with decisions expected in 30 April 2019. The selection criteria for the Summer Program include, but are not limited to,

  1. Demonstrated technical ability (determined through recommendation by school official and other supporting information, such as test scores, completed coursework, and grades collected in the application).
  2. Demonstrated commitment to extracurricular learning via participation and completion of the online course (participation/progress are tracked by the instructors).

Students must make significant progress in the online course by Summer Program application to ensure that they are ready and well prepared for participation in the BWSI programs. Students may participate in one or more of the online courses to determine which they are interested in, but note that the online courses are time-intensive, and we suggest down selecting to a single course as early as possible.

Our program is open to US citizens and permanent residents attending a high school in US.  However we have made exceptions for US citizens and permanent residents attending a high school in foreign country.  For these types of students we will work with their parents as the POCs. 

Cost of Program:  The program itself is free but for out-of-state students who require lodging arrangement there is a fee (~$5,000 for 4 weeks).  This fee is waived fully or partially based on their family income (fully waived if annual income is less than $90,000, no waiver if income is more than $130,000).  All students are responsible for their travel arrangements to/from BWSI.
