Summer Seminars at Luther: June 16-21, 2019
You are invited to apply for a unique summer seminar for high school juniors and seniors held on the Luther College campus.
The Summer Seminars—comprised of the Summer Science, Teacher Education, and Summer Humanities—are designed to provide an
intensive summer experience for students who have traditionally been underrepresented in higher education. Specifically, the program is targeted toward ethnic minority students and/or first-generation college students who show great promise for college entrance and
eventual service to their professions and communities.
Students in the Teacher Education Seminar will explore ways to supplement traditional textbook learning in K–12 classrooms. Professors and current students in the Luther education program will collaborate with participants in developing teaching methods that will enhance opportunities for learning.
The Summer Science Seminar is designed to provide students with hands-on experiences. Students will work with professors and college students on real research projects in laboratories and engage in meaningful class discussions.
During the seminars, all students will have the opportunity to work with a professor from the Humanities department.
The selection process for the seminars is competitive. Students must have a minimum 2.5 GPA in high school and a class rank in the top 50 percent. Applicants should anticipate graduating from high school in 2020 or 2021.
Applications are accepted until May 29, 2019. Only completed applications will be considered for the program. Completed applications include the online application form, current transcript, and payment of the application fee. Once accepted, student must submit the health consent and photo release forms.These are available on the website.
There is a $50.00 non refundable application fee, due at the time of applying. Chicago students using the Luther shuttle will be charged an additional $100. The college will provide program materials, room and board, and costs associated with off-campus field trips.
