About the Program
The Howard University Minority Science and Engineering Improvement Program (HU MSEIP) hosted its first annual summer camp from June 21 - July 17, 2009. We encourage rising seniors, to consider applying to take advantage of this opportunity to participate in this program. The uniqueness of the program is based on the continual engagement in web-based research throughout the academic year with the guidance of research mentors. HU MSEIP hosts this program with the intention of providing high school students with an opportunity to explore the sciences, engineering, and mathematics.
One of the major goals of the HU MSEIP is to provide broad exposure and training for high school students in technology, communication, and team work. Over the course of the three-week program, students will be engaged in research activities, field experiments, tours of research facilities, participate in symposiums, and seminars that expand their knowledge of current technology in science and engineering and communication skills. Additionally, students will receive exposure to the college experience through their stay in a university dormitory, interactions with Engineering/Science faculty and graduate students, and use of campus computational and academic facilities.
Except for the cost of transportation, the attendance of the program is free for all admitted students. As a residential program students will be housed on Howard University's campus for the duration of the program. A monetary award will be given to students who demonstrate promise of achieving the goals of HU MSEIP.
