Free residential programs @ MSU (HS)//Summer Youth programs in Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources — application deadline March 29

AIMS is a one week program for  9th & 10 graders,

AIMS-B is the one week program for Spanish speaking 9th & 10th graders

MAPS is the 6 week program for 10th & 11th grade — these students all get intensive ACT preparation.

The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) at Michigan State University (MSU) is once again sponsoring two summer programs for high school students:  the ANR Institute for Multicultural Students (AIMS) and the Multicultural Apprenticeship Program (MAP).  I am writing to provide you with information and application materials for these two programs.

MAP, now in its 31st year at MSU, is a six-week residential experience designed to provide 10th and 11th grade students hands-on research experience in one of the many fields of agriculture and natural resources.  It also focuses on giving students firsthand experience in “college life;” living and interacting with people from across Michigan and from other states.  MAP begins on Sunday, June 23, and ends on Friday, August 2, 2013.  Selection to MAP is competitive and based, in part, on students’ interest in and aptitude for science.  It is also based on academic achievement.  Although there is no specific grade point average (GPA) cut-off, the average GPA of last year’s MAP participants was 2.5 on a 4.0 scale.  Please encourage academically strong students to apply to MAP.

 The AIMS program is a one-week, on-campus program designed to provide 9th – 11th grade students with broad exposure to educational and career opportunities in the food and agricultural sciences, natural resources, and related scientific and business fields.  AIMS participants are involved in tours and demonstrations, seminars on college admissions and financial aid, and a number of other educational, social, and cultural experiences.  The AIMS program begins on Sunday, July 21, and ends on Friday, July 26, 2013.

 The AIMS-Bilingual program is a one-week, on-campus program designed to provide 9th – 11th grade students who are bilingual with broad exposure to educational and career opportunities in the food and agricultural sciences, natural resources, and related scientific and business fields.  AIMSB participants are involved in tours and demonstrations, seminars on college admissions and financial aid, and a number of other educational, social, and cultural experiences.  The AIMSB program begins on Sunday, July 14and ends on Friday, July 19, 2013.

 The deadline for applying to MAP and AIMS is March 29, 2013.

 If you are interested in applying to one of our programs or download an application from the Internet at:  http://www.canr.msu.edu/prospective_students/pre_college/.
