*Note: Scholars will not be supervised during the two days between sessions (Friday, July 14, 5pm until Sunday, July 16, 4pm). If they decide to stay between sessions, SLIYS staff is not responsible for the scholar. Lodging in the dorms *may* be available for an extra fee upon request, so please be sure to inquire. The scholar is responsible for procuring their own lodging for the time between sessions as well as transportation to and from OSU campus. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.


A non-refundable $25 deposit is due within 14 days of acceptance to the program. This deposit reserves your spot in the program. If this deposit is not received within 14 days of acceptance, your spot may be given to an alternate.

Financial Aid

Need-based financial aid is available. A student's inability to pay SLIYS tuition should not prohibit him/her from attending the program. If you need assistance please contact Dr. Julia McGory.
