Please read instructions carefully before beginning your application submission.

Welcome to the application for the Adventures in Science Middle School Institutes for Summer 2014. Please note that the two essay questions in SECTION 1 must be completed by the student. The rest of the application may be completed by a parent/legal guardian.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN: Make sure you know which courses you are interested in and the days/dates they are being offered. For more information about the Adventures in Science Middle School Institutes, please click here . Complete applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Remember, in order to be considered, your application must include thoughtful essays between 250 and 500 words in length (about 1-2 pages). We highly recommend reading the questions, composing your essays in another program, then pasting them into the spaces provided.

SUBMISSION: Your application is not saved until this entire form is completed. Your application is complete only after you are shown the "Thank You" page at the end. Please note that this is the only confirmation you will receive prior to our final selection. Applicants must currently be in 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th grade. Please print this for your records. Due to the volume of applications, we are not able to confirm application status by email or phone until our selection process is complete.

ACCEPTANCE: Students will be notified of acceptance/rejection via email approximately one month prior to the start date of the class. The application is several pages long, so you should prepare information such as school information and emergency contacts in advance to avoid the possibility of having to start over.

If you have questions about the program or application, please contact Nathan Bellomy at or 212-313-7171.

Thank you, and good luck!
