Icons - Young Scholars Program

The Young Scholars Program is a year-round offering designed for ambitious Philadelphia-area students who are interested in the intellectual challenge and rigorous pace of a true undergraduate experience. In the summer, Young Scholars commute to Penn’s campus to attend courses within one of our two summer sessions alongside Penn undergraduates. All students have access to our outstanding academic resources, including libraries, University learning resources, college admission workshops, and a Penn-appointed academic advisor. For more information about Young Scholars Program summer courses, visit the Penn Summer course guide.
