Summer Scholars

Join us for a brand new course taught by Lipscomb's president and earn an hour of tuition-free college credit.

Start your Lipscomb journey early! Summer Scholars 2020 is a free program for rising high school seniors. You can receive early admission to Lipscomb as an incoming freshman in Fall 2021 with an hour of college credit already under your belt. 

Summer Scholars 2020 is about more than just coursework, though. In a time where many of us feel less connected than ever before, you'll have a chance to meet Lipscomb faculty and future students across the country, building relationships that will translate beyond just the virtual. Through small groups and mentorship, you'll find community at Lipscomb before you even step onto campus.

Summer Scholars 2020 is July 6-17, 2020.
