List of Most Prestigious Summer Programs
List more if you can, I'd like to check out the websites for next year.
MOSP is probably the best for math students.
MathCamps is an option if you can't get in in MoSP
-Summer Science Program
-National Institute of Health
I'm not quite sure about prestige, however, those were all the programs that i really ReALLY wanted to do, but things just didn't work out.
-Research Science Institute (RSI)
-NASA Summer High School Apprenticeship Research Program (SHARP)
-Summer Science Program (SSP)
-Telluride Association Summer Program (TASP)
-Women's Technology Program (WTP)
-Minority Introduction to Engineering, Entrepreneurship and Science (MITE2S)
-The Ross Program
-Program in Mathematics for Young Scientists (PROMYS)
-Texas State University Honors Math Camp

Are you kidding me? MOSP is INCREDIBLY hard to get into (esp if you are a junior or senior). Not only would you have to qualify for the USAMO; you have to do very well on the USAMO (top 60 or so) to even qualify. Granted, the chances for freshmen and sophomores is higher for qualification into MOSP, but it's still hard nevertheless. Getting in basically says you're the top 60 of all math students in the nation. That's some prestige right there.
In fact, MOSP > RSI and TASP because it's so hard.
NASA SHARP no longer exists due to funding problems.
Meh. Depends. I've heard of people who turned down MOSP to go to RSI. That doesn't mean anything though, since RSI is a one-time thing. And they might not have been, well, [i] too [/i] mathy.
The California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science (COSMOS)
at the uc's i don't know if its prestigious, but they do have great financial aid
The list in post #4 is very good.
these are only math and science camps...
does anyone know of any good english/history/language ones?
I'm taking Advanced Creative Writing at Columbia this summer, and I heard it's supposed to be good...
NJ Governor's School (arts, science, engineering/technology, international studies, public issues, environment)
In addition to listing these programs, can people also add some background to them or put a link to web pages with information on them as well? It'd be a lot more helpful this way.

SSP (Summer Science Program): [url]http://www.summerscience.org/home/index.php[/url]
CCIS (yay!): [url]http://ccis.stanford.edu/intern_program.html[/url]
COSMOS (though not very prestigious in my opinion): [url]http://www.ucop.edu/cosmos/[/url]
YSP (Young Scholars Program): [url]http://ysp.ucdavis.edu/[/url]
And for all those interested in a summer internship in science...
You're welcome! ;D
You rock Yuxin!!!!:):)
[b]For journalists[/b], there's a week-long camp which is quite prestigious in the journalism realm called "J-Camp," which accepts 40 students max from 450-500ish applicants each year.
Everything is free, including coverage for airfare. This years' is held at NYU I think.
