2014 College Prep Program
The 2014 College Prep Program (CPP) at APL is now accepting applications. All current high school students (members of the 2015, 2016, or 2017 graduating class) are eligible and invited to submit an application to be part of CPP. We especially encourage applications from students who meet any of the following criteria:
- the first in their family to attend a four-year college
- from low-income backgrounds
- underrepresented in STEM fields
- interested in STEM careers
- in need of mentoring or advice about the college application process
We will discuss different STEM careers, and you will hear from mentors and guest speakers about the paths they took to become successful engineers and scientists. We will also visit area colleges!
Completed applications are due no later than March 18, 2104 (postmark). For additional program information and to apply, please visit the CPP website or download the 2014 College Prep Program Application Packet.
