    The “best” summer opportunity awaits current high school juniors on the campus of Appalachian State University.  The Martha Guy Summer Institute for Future Business Leaders (MGSI) has a solid, 12-year history of inspiring students through exploration of the business world, and we are now accepting applications for our 2016 Cohort.


    Unique aspects of MGSI:

    • Unlike most summer opportunities, MGSI combines a residential experience with out of state travel.  Following two weeks on campus at Appalachian State University, the program concludes with a week of travel to various business and cultural/entertainment sites.
    • Each MGSI class is small. Twenty-four students are selected. The group size provides a much more intimate, personal experience for each participant.
    • It is quite affordable considering the extensive travel, excursions and activities; tuition is $1,500 plus a meal plan fee of $325**Need-based scholarships are available to qualified applicants.
    Which students are well suited for MGSI?

    • We are seeking students who have a sincere interest in business as a college major and demonstrate leadership potential.  Some candidates have an entrepreneurial spirit, or have unique or extensive part-time work experience.   Also consider your most competitive students among under-represented groups and populations.  Interested students should demonstrate academic achievement. 
    • Students who embrace and appreciate new people, opportunities and experiences are ideal for MGSI.  They should also be well-prepared to be away from home and able to manage a demanding schedule.
    • Application deadline is February 26th 2016
    Please offer this opportunity to current juniors – only current juniors are accepted for this program.

    • Please make announcements, post on your website, and include MGSI in your newsletters, and share the opportunity with teachers and club advisors who work with students described above. 
    • Parents want to know!  Share this information with your school’s parent organizations.
    • Please reach out and encourage at least one student to apply!
    Thank you for promoting this program!  Feel free to contact me at mgsi@appstate.edu or 1-877-APP-MGSI
