Sponsor The IDEAL Student for Summer Camp
We are currently looking for donors to assist in sponsoring students to participate in our 2019 Summer Camps.
The Institute for the Development and Enrichment of Advanced Learners (IDEAL) at Texas Tech University was established in 1984 to open the eyes of thousands of students to the endless adventures in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We offer programs for students from K-12th grade. IDEAL helps to encourage students to pursue a post-secondary education and help increase their knowledge with regards to requirements for entering a two- or four-year institution of higher learning.
Our mission is to provide distinctive and unique outreach programs that promote academic excellence and diversity. The most important work is introducing underrepresented students to a collegiate experience and dispelling myths and fears about higher education. Programs are often designed to address a particular need but all programs are designed to give students a successful academic experience on a university campus.
Your donation provides a unique opportunity for a student to participate in one of our youth summer camps. Our programs are based around computer programming, STEAM, renewable energy and personal growth and leadership. Each student who receives a scholarship will be given the opportunity to participate in a week long residential camp on the beautiful Texas Tech University campus. Participants are local, state, national and international.
Our office has formed partnerships with area school districts along with Houston ISD, San Antonio ISD, IDEA Public Schools. Students who participate through these organizations are allowed the opportunity to see what TTU has in store for them and opens their eyes to applying to the university.
Donate and become part of a program that has shaped tomorrows leaders in education and engineering for the past 34 years. Our office could not continue to provide opportunities in educational outreach were it not for participation from amazing students and generosity from our sponsors!
