This year Seattle University will provide two residential high school academic enrichment summer camps for current ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade students. At the foundation of both programs are social justice and innovation. As alumni of Seattle University, we welcome applications from your children and youth you work with to provide this opportunity that will allow them to explore higher education in a fun, challenging, hands-on, empowering way while earning college credits.

Seattle University’s Summer Business Institute is an Albers School of Business & Economics (Albers SBI) program focused on social entrepreneurship. The weeklong overnight program operates from July 5-10, 2020. Young scholars will stay in residential halls, dine at Cherry Street Market and engage with our corporate partners. Also, Albers SBI provides young scholars the opportunity to explore entrepreneurship, marketing, data visualization, accounting, economics and more.

The Seattle University AI4ALL is a two-week residential experience from July 12-24, 2020, for high school students interested in criminal law and artificial intelligence (AI). Throughout the two weeks, young scholars will learn about the intersection of modern technology and criminal justice issues, such as facial recognition, bias, and equity. This program is hands-on and will include engagement with law enforcement and Seattle area tech companies.

Nonetheless, Seattle University’s Summer Scholars Institutes are about more than the classes. Scholars who successfully complete their programs will receive support in college essays, scholarship searches, resume writing and more! Priority deadline for applications close on March 30, 2020. Also, scholarships are available for Washington state students and children of alumni to Seattle University.
