The Summer Youth Institute
The 2018 Summer Youth Institute (SYI) is open to rising high school sophomores and juniors (those currently freshmen or sophomores) who are Mississippi residents.

This form is just the beginning of the application process. Students are not accepted by simply filling out this form. From the applications that we receive, approximately 50 students will be selected for telephone interviews. Only 28 Mississippi students will be selected to attend SYI, which runs from July 21st – 29th, 2018 at the University of Mississippi. For students who are accepted, the cost of attendance is FREE, but students will be responsible for their own transportation to and from Oxford for SYI.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: EXTENDED to Friday, June 15th, 2018.

What we are looking for:
- Students who are both passionate about making positive changes in their communities and enthusiastic about learning new skills and forming new friendships.
- Students who are active in their communities or who are interested in becoming community leaders. Just because a student has not been involved in community work in the past doesn't mean that we won't consider her or him.
A note for families:
While we appreciate students from the same family applying, we are trying to reach as broad a range of students for the Summer Youth Institute as possible. If siblings do apply, only one may be accepted.
A note for students applying from the same high school:
In order to provide the most dynamic and diversity-rich experience for all of our students, the likelihood of more than two students from a single high school attending the Summer Youth Institute in a particular year is slim.
