Tulane Science Scholars Program

The Tulane Science Scholars Program (TSSP) gives high school students the opportunity to take college-credit courses in the summer in science and engineering at Tulane before high school graduation. TSSP is a selective program for rising 10th through 12th grade students who have exceptional talent in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics.

It is a residential program and students will have the option to live on campus in a dormitory for an additional fee. For the students that opt to live on-campus, there are some scheduled activities, which are included in the cost of living on campus. But, since students are taking rigorous college-level courses, we do not over-schedule activities to provide the students with ample free time to read and study.

More details about our summer program can be found here and regarding housing can be found here.

Applications for the summer 2018 TSSP are now open! Apply Now!

Applications are still being accepted for all courses except Materials Science, Neuroscience, and Psychology.
