Carnegie Mellon University - Summer Programs for Diversity


program overview

If you're entering your senior year of high school and are considering careers in engineering, science and other math-based disciplines, you may be interested in the Summer Academy for Mathematics and Science. Consider spending six weeks in our rigorous summer program focusing on technical areas of study. You'll build academic and personal skills required for admission to competitive colleges and universities and take part in fun and exciting summer activities. You must be 16 years old to participate in the Summer Academy for Math and Science program.

If you're interested in being considered for one of our diversity programs outside of the Summer Academy for Math and Science (see below), students must be in high school, have completed their sophomore year and be 16 to 18 years old. This doesn't apply to commuters in the AP/EA program. No other exceptions will be made. 


A limited number of rising high school seniors may be selected to participate in:

  • Advanced Placement/Early Admission
  • Architecture
  • Art
  • Design
  • Drama
