Description:
COSMOS is a one-month long residential program for high school students showing keen interest in science and math. At COSMOS, students are placed into a "cluster" of their choosing and participate in labs, field trips, discussions, and lectures related to their subject area. Students are exposed to a version of college life by living on the UCSC campus for the duration of the program. Financial aid (full and partial) is available for COSMOS.
