Creek Camp
Open to high school freshman, sophomores, and juniors with graduation years of 2019 to 2021, Creek Camp is a great experience for students who are interested in studying environmental science in college or those who simply love the outdoors. While living on campus, campers will participate in various activities and study freshwater ecology in the beautiful streams of Northwestern Pennsylvania.

Creek Campers will:

  • Practice hands-on, field-based research on topics related to watershed health
  • Enjoy a preview of college life by staying in residence halls on Allegheny’s historic campus, one of the most beautiful college campuses in the nation and rated by the Sierra Club as one of the greenest colleges (with a score of 96 out of 99)
  • Work alongside environmental science professionals in one of the oldest and most highly respected environmental science programs in the country ranked #4 in the nation by EnvironmentalScience.org.

Choose from two different sessions:
Session I // June 24-29, 2018 or Session II // July 8-13, 2018

DU’s 17th annual Diversity Summit gathered hundreds of students, faculty, staff, and community members over two exciting days to discuss the intersection of social justice and sustainability—how environmental disaster is often caused and exacerbated by deep social inequalities, and vice versa. Attendees listened to powerful guest speakers and enlightening panel discussions and participated in round tables and workshops to find ways to address challenges of diversity and sustainability.

DU Difference
The DU Difference
What makes a DU education stand out? These four students and alumni are happy to share their experiences:

 

Andi Schlut ’19, a political science and socio-legal studies major, says her liberal arts education at DU is preparing her for any career she chooses, whether that’s as an elected official, working for the government, or conducting research.

 

As an international college student, Shiying “Stacey” Xu ’17 says DU’s caring and supportive environment and small classes helped her excel in her English and communication studies majors. She’s now in Columbia University’s MFA Writing Program.

 

Sherlock Crockett ’19, a first-generation college student, was uneasy about higher education and the related costs. Now into his third year at DU, and after receiving several scholarships for outstanding academic performance, he feels much more confident than he did as an incoming first-year student.

 

Keegan Kienzle ’15, an international studies major, credits his professors for inspiring and mentoring him and opening doors. He recently was awarded a Fulbright Teaching Assistantship in Berlin, Germany.

 

Olympics
DU Student Will Compete in Olympics
DU forward Troy Terry ’19 will compete for the U.S. men’s hockey team at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, this month. Troy helped lead the Pioneers to a national championship last year. “It is such a tremendous honor to be selected,” he said. “I have always taken pride in wearing the red, white, and blue, and to have an opportunity to do it at the Olympics is incredible. I will take pride in representing my family, the University of Denver, and the state of Colorado.” Troy joins a long list of DU hockey players who are earning national attention, including alum Jason Zucker, who plays for the Minnesota Wild and raises money for a Minnesota children’s hospital.

We encourage students to attend a Friday@DU session later this month or in March and April. They’ll take part in an information session, a Q&A session with current DU students, a campus tour, and lunch on us.

Babson College: Intro to the Entrepreneurial Experience for H.S. Students

Consider Babson College and the Summer Study for High School Students: Introduction to the Entrepreneurial Experience, a residential program from July 6 through August 4, 2018, that gives you real-world experience while building your business knowledge and entrepreneurial skills.
Babson College is committed to creating access for all qualified applicants by offering need-based financial aid. To make the process easier, we wanted to share answers to some of the most frequently asked questions students and parents ask our staff.
How many Summer Study students receive financial aid?
Last year, 30 percent of all Summer Study participants received full or partial financial aid. This included 24 full-tuition scholarships, as well as travel expenses in some cases.
 
Is there a way to waive the application fee?
On page 7 of the 2018 Summer Study Application, please indicate that you would like to be considered for Financial Aid on the Scholarships and Financial Aid page. Then, on the last page of the 2018 Summer Study Application, please select “I need an application fee waiver,” so you will be directed to the 2018 Summer Study Financial Aid form.
 
What types of merit and need-based scholarships are available?
Here’s an example of just a few of the available scholarships, visit our page to view a full list of available Summer Study scholarships.
  • Women’s Leadership Scholarship: This scholarship is designated for academically qualified female applicants who have demonstrated superior leadership skills in their high school experience.
  • Social Innovation Scholarship: Students who have applied or intend to apply their leadership and talents to social innovation as students and in their future should apply for this grant.
  • Diversity Scholarship: This scholarship is designated for academically qualified applicants who have demonstrated the ability to build inclusive communities across identities such as race, ethnicity, religion, social class, nationality, (dis)ability, sexual preference, and gender expression.
What documents do I need to apply for financial aid?
To be able to complete the Financial Aid form online, you also will need to upload a copy of each parent’s 2017 or 2016 tax return. International students or non-U.S. applicants should submit a copy of the most recent annual income tax filing or wage statement for each parent.
When do we hear about financial aid decisions?
Students will be notified of their financial aid and scholarship awards by April 16, 2018, along with their admission decision.
