Our SEA website gives a complete description of the programs we're running this summer. Student applications were posted in early February and the deadline for applications if March 22 at midnight. If you have not already done so, would you please spread the word, particularly to students who have beenhistorically underrepresented in engineering?
As an overview of the programs (more details on website), please see below. As a disclaimer, please know that GPA information is not all that is considered. The entire student application (essays, test scores as applicable, recommendation, courseload, etc.) is considered. A high GPA is not a guarantee of acceptance. We receive four to five times as many applications as we have spaces for each program

Attendees will have a chance to take part in one of three breakout sessions that will discuss the systematic contributions to the disempowerment of minority youth, participate in a conversation with high school students around what empowers them, and take part in a activity in which participants will experience what it feels to be disempowered.
