SELECTION & APPLICATION NEXT STEPS **time sensitive
SEA will announce the nominees who have been chosen to submit their application to Brown on January 11, 2018. After confirming participation, selected nominees will then be required to fill out the full Brown Summer Program application and follow the steps below. All application materials should be uploaded and submitted via the Brown Summer Application portal.

  1. 1. Member Program advisors and students should read overview of Summer@Brown and Leadership Institute and select which program they will be applying to.
  2. 2. Create an application account for the Brown Summer Application portal – Please be sure to create only one account per applicant. **Provide an email address that will get checked regularly!
  3. 3. Complete Application Form and Essay – Your application provides basic information about you. In addition, students should be prepared to write an essay telling us:
    what you hope to learn in the program to which you are applying; why this is of interest to you; what contributions you hope to make; and any further information you want to convey to Brown admissions.
    **Advisors, the essay is the most important part of the application and needs to show thoughtfulness. Please proofread your students’ submission.
  4. 4. Identify as an SEA Partner Student – On the online application, there will be a section that is for Financial Aid and Fee Waiver information. From the drop-down menu, please select Squash and Education Alliance (SEA). This will prevent any application fees for the student and deposits needed upon acceptance.
  5. 5. Submit Academic Transcript – Applicants must submit a transcript that contains grades for current academic term and at least TWO previous academic years. Applicants will upload their transcript in the applicant portal after they have submitted their application form.
    **In some cases, additional application materials may be requested. Additional materials may include transcripts, essays, or teacher recommendations. Applications will not be reviewed by the Admission Review Committee until they are complete. Program admission does not guarantee enrollment in a specific course – students will select courses after they are accepted.

SUMMER SCHOOL TUITION, FEES, ADDITIONAL COSTS

Tuition, Fees and Additional Costs
Member programs should be prepared to contribute $325 per week for private school summer programs and $450 per week for pre-college programs. Tuition for Brown gets sent directly to SEA.

PLEASE NOTE that each school requires additional funds (between $200-$500) for books, supplies and incidentals that are not included in the tuition. Programs may be asked to pay for these costs upfront upon acceptance of each student and is an additional cost to the tuition. In certain cases, an initial enrollment fee upon acceptance may also be requested and will vary in amount depending on the school and the financial documents submitted by the students’ families. For Brown, there may be up to $400 in additional costs for textbooks, supplies, and student activities. 

To determine the amount of scholarship allotted, most schools will require the family of each student to fill out a confidential financial questionnaire and provide copies of 2016 or 2017 IRS 1040 Forms and copies of Supporting W-2 Forms and/or 1099 Forms from the same year as the IRS 1040 Form. **Based on this information, the school may ask for an additional contribution from a student’s family based on their ability to pay.  It is very important that this is clear to your students’ families before you make your nominations – they must be willing to disclose financial information and able to provide supporting documentation, and they may be asked by the school to contribute to the cost of the program.

Member Programs should be prepared to contribute for each student accepted:

  • Member programs should be prepared to contribute $325 per week for private school summer programs and $450 per week for pre-college programs.
