Dear colleague,

I am writing to inform you about Columbia University's Science Honors
Program (SHP) and its application process for the 2019-2020 academic
year. This program, now in its sixty-first year, offers enrichment
courses in science and mathematics on Saturday mornings throughout the
school year to 700 students who have been selected from approximately
750 high schools in the metropolitan New York area. Next year's SHP will
have openings for 400 new students. Applicants must now be in the 11th,
10th, or 9th grade and should have a strong interest and exceptional
ability in science and mathematics. I would very much appreciate your
informing appropriate students about the program. The attached
announcement can be posted, and copies can be distributed to all science
and mathematics teachers in your school.

The program uses an online application process which students can access
on the Columbia University SHP web page:
http://www.columbia.edu/cu/shp/apply.html

Each applicant will be asked to do the following:
(1) Submit an online application.
(2) Request that the high school mail an official transcript directly to
the SHP.
(3) Request that a teacher, guidance counselor, or principal submit an
online recommendation letter.
(4) Take a three-hour entrance examination at Columbia on April 6 or
April 27, 2019.

The deadline for the SHP receipt of student online applications is
February 28, 2019.

Mailed official transcripts and online letters of recommendation must be
received by the SHP no later than March 15, 2019. Admission decisions
will be announced by June 19, 2019.

Going forward, we are hoping to move toward more electronic
communication with teachers, guidance counselors and principals at
schools within our catchment area. If you would like to subscribe for
future email updates from the SHP, please go to:
https://lists.columbia.edu/mailman/listinfo/shpupdates
and submit your email address. Your contact information will not be
disseminated in any way, and will be used solely for the purpose of
providing information about the SHP program.

I would like to thank you for your assistance in helping Columbia
University continue this important program.

Sincerely,
Jeremy Dodd
