Summer Honors allows high-achieving students to select from 15 two-week seminars in the areas of aerospace technology, art and graphic design, athletic training, business, chemistry, computer technology, engineering physics, English, history, insurance, mathematics and computer science, medicine, radio-TV-film, Spanish, and theater.
Some of the university's most experienced faculty members conduct the seminars. Upon successful completion, students earn two semester hours of credit that can be applied to a degree at Indiana State or transferred to select universities.
The program is open to students who will be high school seniors this fall and are ranked in the upper 25 percent of their class; have maintained a B average; or are recommended by a teacher, counselor or principal. Academically eligible students who will be sophomores or juniors this fall may enroll in selected seminars as space permits.
Students who successfully complete a Summer Honors seminar and graduate from high school with at least a B average will earn a $4,400 ISU scholarship ($1,100 per year).
Summer Honors allows students to experience residence hall and campus life as well as special cultural and recreational activities. More than 14,000 students have completed a seminar, earned credit and jump-started their college education and career during the program's 37-year history.
The cost to attend Summer Honors is $679, including tuition, room and board. A commuter option also is available at a cost of $481, which includes tuition and meals. Children of ISU alumni are eligible for a $100 scholarship toward the cost of the program.
