Scholarship Opportunities

GW is committed to broadening opportunities for underrepresented students to apply and participate in our summer programs.

D.C. public school and public charter school students from historically underrepresented and underserved communities will receive automatic consideration for scholarship assistance when applying to STEM summer programs. GW also has two full scholarship summer programs funded by private sponsors, Caminos al Futuro and INSPIRE.

Students who wish to be considered for scholarships should apply by March 1 and should clearly demonstrate financial need in their statement of interest.

Scholarships for D.C. Public School & Public Charter School Students

All eligible D.C. public school and public charter school students who apply to any of our College Intensive (credit) 2 or 3-week sessions and Summer Immersion (noncredit) STEM programs will be automatically considered for scholarship awards. The scholarship will cover full or partial program costs for selected students, depending on demonstrated need and funding availability. An additional application will not be required.

Students enrolled in high schools that currently partner with GW on other funded study opportunities (School Without Walls, DCPS Dual Enrollment) will not be eligible for this scholarship opportunity.

These scholarships are funded through GW and contributions from the Siemens Corporation.
