​Summer Program for High School Students

Program Dates: July 6–August 3, 2016

For: Rising High School Juniors (Class of 2018) and Seniors (Class of 2017)

Babson’s Summer Study provides a living/learning laboratory for students to focus on applying and advancing their knowledge in business and entrepreneurship.

Students earn college credit and learn from top-ranked faculty in a challenging and ambitious campus atmosphere. They will differentiate themselves from their peers for college applications and have the opportunity to build their network in meeting with business leaders and industry experts, all while exploring the city of Boston.

While on campus, students are enrolled in a course: the Babson Entrepreneurial Development Experience in which they will work in a team to develop a new venture idea and gain experience applying entrepreneurship as a problem-solving tool for creating social and economic value. Students will work together to discover how to develop and grow new ventures through lessons of market research, feasibility analysis, and other business concepts.​

Thanks to a generous grant from Sundial Brands, we’ve been able to expand our scholarship opportunities with the SheaMoisture #BreaktheWalls Scholarship for female rising junior and senior high school students. This national awareness campaign, #BreakTheWalls, seeks to highlight the struggles women of color face with finding their hair and beauty products in and outside of the beauty aisle.  This partnership is dedicated to providing access for women in underserved communities. All applications that meet the criteria will be automatically considered for this opportunity. Awards will be determined by a combination of financial need and merit.
