The Barrett Summer Scholars (BSS) program provides students with the opportunity to experience college firsthand and prepare for enrollment and success at Arizona State University and Barrett, the Honors College. BSS sessions at ASU are designed for academically-talented and motivated 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students. This residential program invites students to live on campus, engage in college-level coursework, and participate in a community of peers from across the state. Students who participate are given the unique opportunity to pursue their intellectual curiosity while interacting with like-minded students who share their interests and abilities. Furthermore, participants are enrolled in a variety of challenging courses on topics not typically presented at their grade level.
The application deadline is March 6, 2015.
