UF CPET Summer Programs

Important Information Regarding 2021 Youth Summer Programs


The University of Florida is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our pre-college students. CPET is following university guidelines regarding COVID-19 applicable to our programs. After consulting with UF senior leadership and UF Health physicians, the UF Office of Compliance & Ethics has determined that: "no youth activities involving overnight stays in UF facilities will be permitted at this time, throughout Summer 2021, and until further notice" (UF Youth Compliance). Therefore, CPET will not be offering any residential (in-person) youth programs this summer. The Student Science Training Program (SSTP) and Research Explorations (REx) have been canceled, however, many of our other summer programs will be providing a virtual alternative. We may also offer additional online opportunities for the summer, so please continue to check our website for updates.

Application fees are non-refundable even if an application is rejected or waitlisted or in the event that a program is canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Current online offerings for Summer 2021 include: Precollege ScholarsClimate Change Resiliency Program (CCRP), Research Immersion in Science and Engineering (RISE), Florida Youth Institute (FYI), Gator Vet Med, and Global Health Institute (GHI).
