The UMSummer Institute invites high school students (entering their sophomore, junior and senior year in fall 2020) to UM for an intensive, hands-on transformational learning opportunity with our faculty in a live-in, two-week experience June 14-27. They will engage in the classroom during the day and in meaningful social activities in the evenings and during the weekend. Students will be exposed to all aspects of life as a UM student. Out-of-state and in-state high school students can earn three college credits and choose from six course listings.

Offered in conjunction and concurrently with the UMSummer Institute, the Kermit and Kathleen Schwanke Institute is facilitated by the Davidson Honors College at UM and provides high school students and incoming college freshmen the chance to explore university life and academics through an immersive, two-week classroom and field-based program.

Students can choose between two honors courses: “HONR 191: Creative Writing in the Environment” or “HONR 191: Climate Science, Society and Solutions.” Students will spend their mornings engaged in academic coursework and their afternoons taking advantage of college readiness workshops and local field trips. Schwanke Honors Institute students will embark on a three-day excursion to Glacier National Park and visit the Blackfeet Nation in northwest Montana. Scholarship funding is available for the Schwanke Honors Institute.

Applications for the Summer Institute and Schwanke Honors Institute are now open, with each course limited to 20 students. We offer our low Montana resident tuition rate to both resident and nonresident high school students. Early applications are encouraged, particularly for the Schwanke Honors Institute’s need-based scholarships. Additionally, UM offers other dual enrollment courses for high school students in the summer.
