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. The “best” summer opportunity awaits current high school juniors on the campus of Appalachian State University.
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.
Application deadline is February 28th 2019 - see this link for more info.

ECU STEPP PROGRAM : High school students with significant learning disabilities face a variety of academic, social, and lifeskills challenges. The possibility of going to college – an idea that many people take for granted – can be a distant dream at best for some individuals with learning disabilities, even for those who have both the aptitude and the motivation to earn a degree. Students with learning disabilities may struggle with maintaining a grade point average or scoring high enough on the SAT or ACT for college entry. Furthermore, they may need more comprehensive support than can be offered in most college settings. East Carolina University is addressing this important need with Project STEPP (Supporting Transition and Education through Planning and Partnerships). Funded primarily with private gifts, this program provides a unique opportunity to a population that traditionally has not gone to college. www.ecu.edu/cs-acad/stepp/
