The Radcliffe Summer Program in Science, a joint project of Radcliffe
College and Harvard Summer School, has an excellent eight-week summer
program. It's not specifically for minorities, though; the program is
geared primarily towards (female) high school juniors who are interested
in the sciences. Full college credit is given (I don't remember exactly
how many credit hours...I believe it is considered an eight-unit
course); financial aid is available. Participating students study
Chemistry, Physics, Molecular Biology, and some Biology; attend guest
lectures by many female scientists in diverse fields; and make
interesting site visits to (you guessed it) very interesting (and cool)
science-related companies/sites. Such places as the Whitehead Institute
at MIT, the Envirolab at UMass, the Shriver Center, Harvard School of
Public Health, Arnold Arboretum, and MITRE were visited this past summer.
I don't think (I hope) it's too late to apply for RSPiS... Try writing
Ms. Cecilia Marra, Coordinator
Radcliffe Summer Program in Science
10 Garden Street
Cambridge, MA 02138
as soon as possible.
Ms. Marra doesn't have e-mail, so if you prefer to utilize the Internet,
try writing Dr. Jocelyn Spragg: jspragg at warren.med.harvard.edu
Dr. Spragg is the principal lecturer and course developer for RSPiS.
Hope this helps!
