Williams College Opportunity

Windows on Williams is a selective program open to high school students in the U.S. and Puerto Rico who will be seniors in the Fall of 2022; preference is given to high-achieving students who couldn’t otherwise afford to visit Williams.

We are excited to offer two all-expenses-paid fly-in programs occurring September 22 to 24 and October 20 to 22. Regardless of when students apply, they'll have the opportunity to select which WOW program they want to attend. Currently, participation in WOW requires proof of vaccination against COVID-19, including a booster if eligible, and masks must be worn inside all campus buildings. We will notify WOW attendees should campus COVID-19 policies change.

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted students’ high school experiences. Rest assured that we’ll be flexible and understanding in considering those disruptions as part of our individualized, student-centered application review process.
