Although we work with these partners, we cannot guarantee admissions or funding solely on the basis of belonging to these organizations. If you are a student seeking additional funding opportunities to participate in a Summer at Hopkins program or course, we invite you to contact the appropriate organization for more information. Each one has its own application and selection process.
