Pre-College Scholars Program
Stay tuned for more information on Summer 2023.
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 approximately 38 hours of SAT prep class instruction and 11 hours of math prep instruction, over the course of 3 weeks, Monday through Friday. Students will also attend information sessions from each of our eight engineering departments. All programming will be held in-person, on the campus of the University of Maryland.
