Summer Scholars

Program Dates: Session I: June 10 - 24, 2023 | Session II: July 1 - 15, 2023


Summer Scholars participants spend two intensive weeks on Notre Dame's campus taking a challenging college-level course taught by Notre Dame faculty. We keep the classes small and personal attention from Notre Dame faculty high. The coursework is a true preview of college academics—it is both rigorous and rewarding, and students earn one transferable college credit upon the completion of a program track. Students collaborate on coursework outside designated class times as they would in any college setting. There is also ample time to enjoy the social facets of college life, especially those unique to Notre Dame. 

We are offering two Summer Scholars sessions in Summer 2023. Session I will run  June 10 - June 24, 2023 and Session II will run  July 1 - 15, 2023. Applications are live and are due February 20, 2023.

  • Pre College student testimonial

    "I was able to be in a college setting and get an idea of college academics. I was also able to participate in a community service project and it gave me a sense of giving back. It isn't just about the academics, but how we help one another."
