Summer Scholars Program
Let us help you accelerate your education. Students accepted as SPECTRA Summer Scholars will start their Truman experience early by taking two majors-level STEM1 courses during the summer before the start of their freshman year. The SPECTRA program will
provide SPECTRA Summer Scholars with on-campus room and board during that time (a $2000 value),
pay the cost of tuition for a science and math course (a $1,000 value),
provide tips for academic success at the college level,
pay a $1,0002 stipend to SPECTRA Summer Scholars who successfully complete the program, and
organize summer activities that will promote the social, academic, and professional growth of SPECTRA Summer Scholars.
In addition, SPECTRA Summer Scholars will get priority access to the STEP Office's support programs for their first two years at Truman, provided they continue to enroll and be successful in major-level STEM courses.
This program is designed for the student whose record demonstrates considerable commitment to earning a STEM degree and who would benefit from a jumpstart on his or her college education.
