In school my assigned readings were usually by white men of European descent. We read Homer and Shakespeare and Steinbeck and Salinger. We read Orwell and Dickens and Fitzgerald - writers who didn’t look like me, or my family, or my friends. What I liked to read, then, didn’t feel as serious or important as a white author who we referred to by last name.

New this year, our program will take place July 22-29, making the Institute an option for more students. We’ll also be using the air-conditioned dormitories of the Commonwealth Honors College and state-of-the-art classroom facilities at the newly renovated South College building.
Stay tuned to our new website and our mailing list for more information on programming and scholarships. Applications for the 2018 session will open January 1, 2018. Teachers are welcome to nominate their students through our easy to use nomination form. Students should apply by March 1 to be considered for scholarship support.
Enjoy exploring the site, and we hope to see you this summer!
