Thanks to the vision and the generosity of the Neubauer family, top students engaged in Hispanic/Latino communities can now participate in select University of Chicago Summer Session courses free of charge.
The Neubauer Family Adelante Summer Scholars program brings talented rising high school seniors to the University of Chicago campus to get an early taste of an exceptional college experience.
Outstanding students who share the Neubauers' commitment to the Hispanic/Latino communities are invited to apply.
Students selected will receive a full scholarship to participate in one of two Summer Session courses: Collegiate Writing: Awakening Into Consciousness or Contagion: Infectious Agents and Emerging Diseases. Even if you don't plan to study English or Biology in college, being a Neubauer Family Adelante Summer Scholar is a great way to get an early look at college-level classes and get a feel for life on campus--and to have a ton of fun in the process! You'll spend the mornings gaining hands-on experience from teachers who are experts in their fields and the evenings exploring Chicago with your classmates.
“I was a part of the Neubauer Adelante program and absolutely loved it! I took Awakening into Consciousness and cannot begin to say how much I enjoyed the Socratic Seminar style of learning--the answers were not given, they were discovered, something that was hugely different from my high school's way of teaching, and I believe to be much more intriguing. It was here that my love for learning was fully realized. But if I were to be perfectly honest, I would have to say that the part of the program I missed most was the people I encountered. All 31 of us Neubauer scholars became unimaginably close; whether it was dancing to tango, exploring the city, or simply working on essays, we were always together. I can't thank the University of Chicago enough for giving me this opportunity.”
