OSSE Scholars Summer Enrichment Program

OSSE Scholars Summer Enrichment Program


OSSE Scholars provides high-achieving, academically motivated, students who exhibit financial need with the opportunity to attend selective summer college programs. As an OSSE Scholar, students attend top-tier universities across the country for rigorous summer courses. The program offers early exposure to college-level academics, navigating a college environment, and, at certain universities, earning college credit.  

If you are a student with a GPA of 3.2 or higher who demonstrates leadership skills inside and outside of the classroom, this may be the perfect opportunity for you to jumpstart your college experience. 

How to Become an OSSE Scholar:

  1. Review the OSSE Scholar university summer programs to select the ones that you are interested in attending. 
  2. Complete and submit the application. The application will be available from August 24, 2015 through October 30, 2015.  
  3. OSSE will contact you to set up an interview.
  4. If notified that you have been selected as an OSSE Scholar, you will complete a university program application with OSSE’s support.
