Junction will not run in Summer 2019 or in the foreseeable future.

What? Propose, design and carry out an independent study project guided by a knowledgeable mentor. Take college level, hands on afternoon seminars in a variety of fields. Be part of a tight community of students and mentors.

Who? High school students with great ideas! Students must be in grades 9-12 before the summer they participate

About Past Junction Programs

Junction is a summer program for advanced, self-driven high school students held on the MIT campus Sundays during July-August. Each summer, Junction gives between approximately 50 students the opportunity to execute an in-depth independent study project through a unique mentoring experience. Junction combines this individual mentoring with diverse afternoon seminars taught largely by the mentors. To apply, Junction student applicants will write a proposal explaining their idea for an independent study project. Each Junction mentor will use these proposals to select up to seven students and help these students refine their proposals throughout the summer to prepare them for Junction.
