The Fall Future Achievers in Science and Technology (FAST) Program will be held October 8 – 10, 2015 at Harvey Mudd College. It’s an opportunity for high school seniors from populations that are traditionally underrepresented in math and science—including women, students of color and those who will be among the first in their families to attend a four-year college—to experience Harvey Mudd.
Participants of Fall FAST will stay overnight in one of their residence halls, take a campus tour, sit in on classes, complete an interview with the Office of Admission, participate in a hands-on computer science workshop and much more. There will also be discussions on admission policies, financial aid opportunities, campus resources and the benefits of pursuing a technical degree at a liberal arts college. Participants will be doing all of this while interacting with current Mudd students, faculty and staff, and other college-bound students from around the country who share a passion for the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
The Fall FAST Program is free to all participants and includes lodging, meals and travel accommodations (if applicable). Participants will also receive a fee waiver for a Harvey Mudd College freshman application.
Rising high school seniors can apply for the Fall FAST program via their online application. The deadline to apply for the Fall FAST program is Monday, August 24, 2015.
