Tulane Science Scholars Program

The Tulane Science Scholars Program (TSSP) gives high school students the opportunity to take college-credit courses taught by Tulane faculty in the School of Science and Engineering before high school graduation. The TSSP is a selective program for rising 10th through 12th grade students who have exceptional talent in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics.  A variety of courses in science and engineering are offered each summer and have a workload similar to that of a regular undergraduate course.  During the course of a two-week session, students will also attend lunch-n-learns with invited speakers as well as tour many of our science and engineering research labs including the Tulane Makerspace.

The TSSP is a residential program and students will have the option to live on campus in a dormitory for an additional fee. For the students that opt to live on-campus, there are some scheduled activities, which are included in the cost of living on campus. However, since students are taking rigorous college-level courses, activities are not over-scheduled in order to provide the students with ample free time to read and study.  Please email with any questions.
