For the first time ever, the University of Cincinnati's Summer Institutes for Honors Students will be open to gifted high school students around the Tristate, provided they're within commuting distance of UC's main campus this summer. In the past, the program was limited to students from Ohio only.
The institutes offer social and academic opportunities for students that they won't find in their own school classrooms. They can choose between two weeklong programs open to 30 students per week beginning June 18. Students must be a current high school freshman or sophomore who has been identified as an honors student or academically gifted.
Classes will meet from 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m. in UC's College of Law and will be conducted by UC faculty. Costs for the weeklong programs run $199, which includes classroom instruction materials, lunch and a field trip. Students must register by May 2.
For an application, contact Gay Laughlin, administrative coordinator, (513) 556-9176. Students can choose to study one of the following programs:
June 18-22 Law, Language and Society - Students will explore jobs and issues in the legal profession and will meet in chambers with a judge when they tour a courtroom in Hamilton County. Parents will be invited to the College of Law to watch students wrap up what they've learned in a mock trial.
July 9-13 The Practice and Ethics of Medicine - Explore some of the tough issues the medical professionals take on daily, as students examine medical questions posed by doctors, researchers, lawyers, and economists. Students will get a look at the latest medical technology as part of their tour through the College of Medicine. Parents can attend the Friday student presentations on medical ethics.
