The Summer Scholars Institute, founded in 1999, is a groundbreaking, intensive two-week program designed for exceptional rising juniors and seniors eager to experience the atmosphere of college with interactive courses to meet the individual interests of students.

The Summer Scholars Institute is held at our New York City Campus, nestled between City Hall Park and South Street Seaport. We have a rigorous and challenging program of study scheduled for students, which includes four “majors” or fields of study from which to choose.

The Summer Scholars classroom experience is paired with active exploration of New York City. Students will get to mix with Pace University faculty, staff, current students, Summer Scholars alumni, and students from all over the country. Parents are invited to attend the opening and closing receptions, where they can meet Summer Scholars staff and professors.

We draw students to the Summer Scholars Institute from near and far, so students have the opportunity to meet fellow students from all over the country. Students also have the option of staying on campus in the dorms with us as a resident or commuting from home each day.


We are excited to announce the Summer Scholars Institute, which includes options for housing at one of our Pace University dormitory facilities as well as a Commuting Student option. 


Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, as they are received. Applicants should expect to hear about their acceptance status within a few weeks after their applications are received by the Institute.
