This exciting 8 day program is designed to give American Indian high school students an opportunity to gain academic experience in a university setting at the University of California, Riverside. During the day, students will participate in writing and computer courses, and personal development workshops. In the afternoons, they will engage in cultural and team building workshops, as well as fitness activities and a beach field trip. In addition, students will work with professors, college students, and invited American Indian community members as they discover and develop their career/lifetime goals. The program will end with a closing ceremony with certificates and awards.

All students in the program will be available to UCR staff and students throughout their remaining years of high school, which will include guidance in choosing their coursework, financial aid, and applying to a university.
Don’t miss out… The Summer Program will cover most of your expenses during the week. These include: housing, daily meals, course books, school supplies, and transportation during program activities.
