Alabama A&M University welcomes applications from students attending 4-year colleges. Priority will be given to students who are first generation college students, non-traditional students returning to school, and students from ethnic groups that are under-represented in the sciences. Because of logistics, this year's program will run from May 11-July 10, 2014. Accepted applicants will need to make arrangements with their home university to take final exams early and be on the Alabama A&M University on May 11.
Applicants must be:
U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program and who will return to their studies in Fall 2014.
