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 tssp@tulane.edu with any questions.

We are no longer accepting applications for residential participants. Day participants are still encouraged to apply. 

The Tulane Science Scholars Program is run by the Center for K-12 STEM Education housed in the School of Science and Engineering. Please visit the Center for more information.
