UMass Boston – Urban Scholars Program

Our intensive Summer Institute offsets summer learning loss by providing 150 hours of essential academic and college-ready skills and knowledge. Students return to school fully prepared to build on the rigorous academic foundation laid in the summer courses. Each summer class is project-based with students applying the content and skills learned throughout the summer to a final project showcased at the annual Urban Scholars Project Showcase. Past projects have included PowerPoint presentations, live readings, demonstrations, and poster presentations.
