high school students: apply to the sasc summer institute

The Southeast Asian Student Coalition at UC Berkeley is currently accepting applications for the SASC Summer Institute, a five-day educational program running this summer, June 20-24.

This is a great opportunity for Southeast Asian high school students to network, share peer experiences and build community in a safe and constructive learning environment. And it's free! Here are some more details:
The SASC Summer Institute is a five-day educational program, which takes place in the summer, from Wednesday, June 20th to Sunday, June 24th, 2012.

The SASC Summer Institute’s objective is to build a network within the Southeast Asian American communities (especially those who are tied to the Southeast Asian refugee experience) amongst high school students, college students, parents, and community members to promote greater access to higher education. Those selected will participate in college workshops, dialogues, and other peer-bonding activities, while staying in one of the U.C. Berkeley dormitories or other accommodations.

This is an all-expense paid summer program that provides a safe and constructive learning environment. SASC Summer Institute is seeking motivated high school students with diverse experiences and backgrounds. Academic performance is not a factor in the acceptance of participants, thus, all are encouraged to apply.
High school students of any ethnicity are eligible to apply, but be aware that the majority of the workshops will cater to students who relate to the Southeast Asian experience (including Mien, Hmong, Laotian, Cambodian, and Vietnamese ethnicities).

Applications are due postmarked on Friday, March 30 at 11:59pm. For further information, and to download an application, go here.
