Pre-College Scholars Program
Applications now being accepted for our 2021 virtual summer program.
The goal of the Clark School Pre-College Scholars Program is to recruit talented students to attend the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland. The program recruits students in the 10th and 11th grade (rising juniors and seniors) who have an interest in and aptitude for mathematics, science and/or engineering.
There will be a total of 18 hours of SAT prep class instruction, running from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. over the course of 3 weeks, Monday through Thursday, and a total of approximately 4.5 hours of college prep instruction on Fridays. Students will also have the option to attend daily information sessions from each of our eight engineering departments. All programming will be held in a virtual environment.
