ISU taking applications for Summer Honors program

News Release

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State University is accepting applications from talented high school students interested in taking part in this year’s Summer Honors program.

Summer Honors participants get a complete college experience, including staying in a university residence hall. They will work alongside ISU professors. The 2013 program will run July 21-27 and will offer 16 courses.

New seminars will be offered this year in genome science, law 101 and wind ensemble science and performance. Returning seminars will explore aviation fundamentals; digital electronics; drugs, pharmaceuticals and medicinals; elementary education; forensic facial reconstruction; graphic design and photography; music business; interior architecture and design; nursing and social work; the rise of China; the Middle Ages; sports injury prevention and care; and theater.

Summer Honors is open to current high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors. Participants should have at least a “B” average and must be recommended by a high school teacher, counselor or principal. However, students who do not have a “B” average may be accepted on a space-available basis if they have a strong recommendation letter.

Participants can earn one semester hour of credit that may be applied to a degree at ISU or transferred to select universities. Students who complete the program with a B average or higher in their seminar, and graduate from high school with at least a B average, will be eligible to earn a $1,000 scholarship to ISU.

The cost for most seminars is $375 and includes tuition, room and board. All participants pay the same rate for Summer Honors regardless of whether they live in Indiana or another state.

The application deadline is June 1. Fees will be due upon acceptance into the program.
