Hampshire College Students Working in a Science Lab

Financing Your Pre-college Summer Experience

We understand that financing a two-week summer program experience can be challenging. Summer Programs will work with all students on securing outside funding for students when available. We encourage all students to contact their high school guidance office and/or community organizations for more information on summer program financial assistance. Many communities have funding available for high school students who are interested in exploring pre-college and/or college preparatory summer programs.

Summer Programs encourages students to register for free scholarship searches for summer programs through the following search resources:

Other Financial Support Options

Due to generous donations from Civil Liberties and Public Policy (CLPP) and Soapbox Feminist Camp, we are able to provide some financial assistance to some Young Feminist Collaborative participants to enroll in this precollege program. Students should indicate their interest in financial aid by indicating so on their program applications.

Please review our Housing and Logistics page for more information on program application deadlines, especially priority deadlines, which offer students a 10% tuition discount.

We will continue to update this page as more financial assistance options become available. Please contact Summer Programs at summer@hampshire.edu or by calling 413.559.6843 with any questions.

Pre-college Program Partners

We look forward to growing our pre-college program partnerships. Schools and organizations that we currently work with include:
