     Martha Guy Summer Institute for Future Business Leaders

    The Martha Guy Summer Institute for Future Business Leaders (MGSI) will be accepting applications for 2019 program participants through February 28, 2019.  We look forward to seeing applications from your high school. 

     As a reminder, here are some key points about the program:

    Unique aspects of MGSI

    • Unlike most summer opportunities, MGSI combines a residential experience with out of state travel.  The program concludes with a week of travel to various business and cultural sites, including visiting New York City.
    • Each MGSI class is small.  Twenty-four students are selected.  The group size provides a much more intimate, personal experience for each participant.
    • It is quite affordable considering the extensive travel, excursions and activities; tuition is $1,900 plus a meal plan of $350.  

    Need-based scholarships are available to qualified applicants to defray tuition costs.

    Which students are well suited for MGSI?

    • We are seeking students who have a sincere interest in business as a college majorand 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 28th2019

    Please offer this opportunity to current juniors

    • Please make announcements, post on your website, and include MGSI in your newsletters, and share the opportunity with teachers and club advisors who work with students described above.
    • Parents want to know!  Share this information with your school’s parent organizations.
    • Please reach out and encourage at least one student to apply!
