As of 11/21/11 the application for the 2012 Minority Introduction to Engineering & Science Program (MITES) at MIT is Now Available Online. MITES is open to high school Juniors interested in pursuing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics related fields. I'm a MITES 2011 alumnus and I and many of my fellow MITES family can vouch for the intensity of both the fun and rigor of the program. You will be challenged: intellectually, emotionally, and perhaps even spiritually, but it will all be worth it (trust me). If you have any questions, comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be more than happy to answer them.
Best of luck to all of you!
