Now Accepting Applications for the 2021 Online Summer Program!

These are difficult times, and we continue to face many challenges as a global community. As an Institute, we are deeply committed to building our collective future and to continuing our important work developing a cadre of brilliant minds whose aim is to solve the greatest challenges facing this society. 

Although the traditional Summer Institute for rising 8th - rising 12th graders cannot physically occur at Princeton University, we have developed an online program filled with various course offerings that will be taught by university professors, post-doctoral fellows, and doctoral candidates from top research universities and institutions throughout the country. The program will occur via a web conferencing platform to provide a unique academic learning opportunity, which includes college level coursework and group discussions aimed to sharpen students’ research, and quantitative analysis skills, as well as writing, verbal, and critical reading skills. .

Feel free to email to us at or give us a call (609-955-0666) if you have any questions.
