Appalachian Martha Guy Summer Institute (Business)
The “best” summer opportunity awaits current high school juniors on the campus of Appalachian State University. The Martha Guy Summer Institute for Future Business Leaders (MGSI) has a solid history of inspiring students through exploration of the business world, and we will begin accepting applications for our 2019 Cohort on December 1, 2018. Unique aspects of MGSI ·Unlike most summer opportunities, MGSI combines a residential experience with out of state travel. Following two weeks on campus at Appalachian State University, the program concludes with a week of travel to various business and cultural/entertainment sites. ·Each MGSI class is small. Twenty-four students are selected. The group size provides a much more intimate, personal experience for each participant. ·It is quite affordable considering the extensive travel, excursions and activities; tuition is $1,900 plus a meal plan fee of $350. ** **Need-based scholarships are available to qualified applicants. Which students are well suited for MGSI? ·We are seeking students who have a sincere interest in business as a college major and demonstrate leadership potential. Some candidates have an entrepreneurial spirit, or have unique or extensive part-time work experience. Also consider your most competitive students among under-represented groups and populations. Interested students should demonstrate academic achievement. ·Students who embrace and appreciate new people, opportunities and experiences are ideal for MGSI. They should also be well-prepared to be away from home and able to manage a demanding schedule.
