Scholarship Summer Camps Hosted by Summer Youth Programs

During the weeks of June 23-29 and July 7-13, Summer Youth Programs will be hosting two huge scholarship summer camps: Women in Engineering (WIE) and Engineering Scholars Program (ESP). As part of these camps, we host an expo about all things Michigan Tech. This expo includes representatives from many student organizations, Enterprise teams, and club sports. Additionally, this will serve as the academic expo for the two programs; all departments are welcome to attend.

The purpose of the “Tech Expo” is to give these bright students a feeling of what life is like at Michigan Tech. All of the participants have applied and been accepted to the program based on academic performance, extracurricular activities, and teacher recommendations — they are very driven and interesting young people! The average GPAs are over 3.8, and they are in all manner of clubs at their respective high schools. During the week of June 23rd, the group is entirely female. 150 students participate each week for a total of 300.

If you or someone else in your organization would be interested in hosting a booth at the expo, please fill out the information below. Last year we hosted several dozen tables, and we are striving to make this year’s Expo the best yet! The events are on June 26 and July 10 from 4-5 pm. If you have any questions about the event or our programs, please feel welcome to contact Liz Fujita (
