NSHSS members now have a special opportunity to apply for an Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute Tuition Scholarship ($600).

ESSYI is a two-week academic enrichment program that provides talented, rising high school juniors and seniors with a college-level, hands-on learning experience that explores the many disciplines, tools and approaches needed to address complex, environmental issues. The mission of ESSYI is to empower students with the confidence, capacity, and tools to change the world. At the same time, the program helps students understand the variety of collegiate and career opportunities that are related to one’s interest in the environment. Participating students who successfully complete the program receive course credit at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. The Program dates are Sunday, July 16 through Saturday, July 29, 2017.

The Institute is located in the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes region, on beautiful Seneca Lake, at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. You will engage in the exploration of environmental issues with 15 faculty members in a variety of locations: on the HWS William F. Scandling (a 65-foot vessel on Seneca Lake), in streams, quaking bogs, and in the Adirondack Mountains. Working in the field, in laboratories, in classrooms, and on a four-day camping trip, you will explore a range of topics in environmental policy, economics, and ethics. The Institute welcomes students from around the world who have a broad range of interests. ESSYI also recognizes that every student can contribute to the success of the program, whether their background is in the arts, the humanities, the natural sciences, or the social sciences. Students work closely with a diverse group of Hobart and William Smith faculty. This summer’s faculty will include artists, economists, political scientists, geologists, biologists, chemists, writers and those focused on public policy.

This summer the ESSYI Program celebrates its 25th Anniversary! This reunion celebration will be a two-and-a-half-day experience that invites all alums, parents, staff and faculty to reconnect with their peers, engage in activities and discussions, interact with current participants, and contribute to the future vision of ESSYI

NSHSS scholars are invited to apply to the ESSYI Tuition Scholarship Competition using the regular application process on the ESSYI website. When applying, we ask that you indicate that you are applying for an NSHSS scholarship in the application section entitled “Academic Interests.”

Alternatively, you may also use the “Request Information” section of the website to request a brochure, information about the Colleges, and paper application materials.
http://essyi.hws.edu/requestinformation/
Scholarship recipients will be chosen based on a combination of academic ability, a teacher’s recommendation, and a personal statement. The personal statement should be environmentally focused and provide us with insight into who you are and how you think.

There are three scholarship awards of $600 each available.

The $25 application fee will be waived for all National Society of High School Scholars. The deadline to apply is April 15th, 2017.

Scholarship Award: Wellesley College will select two NSHSS members to receive a tuition fee discount of 50% off the four week residential program (valued at $2,600.00).

Wellesley College is known for the excellence of its education, the beauty of its setting, its gifted faculty, and the uniqueness of its campus culture.

The mastery Wellesley graduates demonstrate across the professional and vocational spectrum, and the influence they wield—whether in their own communities or on the world stage—is testament to a singularly empowering undergraduate experience.

A Wellesley education fosters the highest standard of readiness for the “real world” in its graduates, in terms of ability to think, act, and contribute meaningfully and effectively in their chosen areas of interest. And now, in addition to the traditional undergraduate summer term Wellesley College is offering academically motivated high school women a Pre-College Residential program where they will have the chance to experience college, take classes and make new friends.
