UC Berkeley Summer Chemistry Academy
July 18 - July 31, 2021

The Summer Chemistry Academy is a unique 2-week summer experience designed for motivated high school students entering grades 9 through 12 who are passionate about the chemical sciences and wish to excel their understanding of what college-level academics and life will be like. Students will experience intense immersion in each of the following areas over the two weeks.

Research. Step into the actual laboratories that conduct the cutting-edge and award-winning research the College of Chemistry is famous for. Find out why we are ranked the #1 chemistry program in the world!

Academics. Learn one-half or 8-weeks of our regular semester’s inorganic chemistry lecture and lab course over the two weeks, which will be taught by the same faculty who teach the course to UC Berkeley undergraduates during the year. The course will provide unparalleled and excellent preparation for doing well in AP Chemistry or college-level chemistry.

Mentoring. Experience Berkeley student life, tutoring, and advising from undergraduate UC Berkeley students who also serve as our program resident advisors.

All-inclusive program costs are $6,500, which includes instruction, room/board, excursions, class and laboratory materials, airport transfer to/from SFO, and program materials. There are a limited number of need-based scholarships available to accepted, underrepresented students.
