    Badger Summer Scholars is a transformative learning opportunity for high school students across several academic areas of interest.

    Participants in the program will learn what it is like to be a badger and gain valuable experience in a dynamic and challenging learning environment, all while interacting with UW–Madison faculty at a top-ranked university. You will chose one academic track to focus on during the academic day. Class sizes are kept small to allow for an engaging course and are taught by UW–Madison instructors who have the same level commitment and involvement from Badger Summer Scholars as they would from college students.

    During class, you will utilize the same online platforms as UW Madison students, Canvas, Blackboard and Zoom. After class blocks are over, you will participate in a series of college preparatory workshops, designed to help you become familiar with the college application process and college life. You will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities and connect online with fellow participants.
