Rising Juniors and Seniors interested in STEM: Lehigh University has a great opportunity for you this summer! Their Summer Engineering Institute (SEI) is a two-week program, which if nominated, would be completely FREE for you to attend. Please see below the details and the student profile for what Lehigh is looking for. Our high school has been given 8 spots for this excellent opportunity! Interested students who meet the criteria listed below should email Miss Bonney by April 6th.
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lehigh University SEI is comprised of a two-week fully online program June 28, 2021 to July 9, 2021. The program offers students an online opportunity to work with Lehigh students and faculty. Nominated students should be 100% capable of participating in this two-week online program. The session will run Monday through Friday from 10 am-12 pm, 2-4 pm and 6-7 pm. The right students for SEI are rising juniors or seniors in high school who would have a reasonable expectation of success at a college like Lehigh, but they may live in challenging socioeconomic circumstances, perhaps among the first generation in their family to consider collegiate studies. They are academically capable and personally responsible enough to handle a two-week online program, and may be considered an “underrepresented group” in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Most of all, they would enthusiastically engage in labs, classrooms, and virtual field trips, learning alongside our dedicated staff of college-aged mentors and faculty members.
