Summer Programs for Undergraduates


Delaware State University offers summer internships and professional development programs for undergraduates students. 

  Jumpstart Program | Undergraduates | Jun 30-Aug 7, 2014 | $2,500  The Jumpstart Program is a rigorous summer academic enrichment and leadership program. Candidates are identified during the admissions process and are invited to get a “jumpstart” on their college career by enrolling in courses prior to the beginning of the academic school year. Participants have the opportunity to enroll in up to 11 credits and fast track their academic success through course rigor, leadership and career development. Jumpstart is for the incoming freshman who is a rising star! The goal of the program is to nurture the talents and strengths of the candidates while assisting them to refine the road map to their dreams. Candidates enter the fall semester as students with a sense of awareness and belonging. Jumpstart gives them the confidence and self-assurance that will be needed to handle the rigors of everyday college life and beyond as they move forward on the journey to their future.
