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

Who can apply?
Students apply in the fall semester of their junior year in high school for the upcoming summer programs. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents to apply.

By submitting just one application, you are automatically considered for one of the national programs. You cannot choose to apply to one particular program. 

 Last year's National Programs included:
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. Learn more about  E2.

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. Learn more about  MOSTEC.

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

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