Our national outreach programs empower talented students with the knowledge and confidence necessary to pursue careers in technical fields.

Who can apply?

If you are currently a high school junior who excels in math and science, as well as a US citizen or permanent resident, then you can apply! 

By submitting just one application, you are automatically considered for one of the following three programs with the same selection criteria:

Minority Introduction to Engineering and Science (MITES)
This intense six-week program immerses students in life at MIT through math and science courses, a challenging hands-on elective course, workshops, guest speakers, and social events.

Engineering Experience at MIT (E2@MIT)
In this one-week program, students take one of six intensive project-based courses, participate in admissions and financial aid sessions, and participate in lab tours and social events.

MIT Online Science, Technology, and Engineering Community (MOSTEC)

From July through January, students in this online program discuss research, receive admissions and financial aid advice, and attend webinars. They also complete online science and engineering projects that they present during a five-day conference on MIT’s campus.

It's FREE!
Program costs are generously covered by our funders. Students only pay for transportation to and from MIT.

 2017 MITES/E2/MOSTC Summer Program Dates have not yet been released.
Upon acceptance, students should email if they have concerns about program dates conflicting with school obligations.

Via the SummerApp, you will be considered for one of three academic enrichment opportunities: MITES, E2@MIT, or MOSTEC. You cannot choose to apply to one particular program. To learn more about the application process, please view the 2016 OEOP Application Webinar, by clicking here.
