The Ulysses S. Grant Foundation is a 6-week academic summer program for talented and motivated middle school students in New Haven.  Each summer a team of Yale undergraduate teachers, through courses in the humanities and investigations and through electives and group activities, help students acquire the academic preparation and skills they will need to excel in their current school environment and to enter and succeed in college.  The program is designed for bright students, even those who might have limited opportunities and resources, to participate in academic enrichment activities over the summer.

The dates for this year’s summer program are June 25 – August 3, 2018. The program will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. The program takes place on Yale’s beautiful Old Campus in Dwight Hall. U.S. Grant upholds a strict attendance policy and only considers students who can commit to attending every day of the program.
