Virginia Tech Imagination Summer Program June 17-July 19

The Center for the
Enhancement of Engineering Diversity (CEED) at Virginia Tech’s College of Engineering will again be
offering a residential component to our Imagination camp for rising 7th and 8th graders, targeting
underrepresented students in the Richmond area among other geographical locations. Participants stay in
a Virginia Tech residence hall with VT student chaperones and eat at the campus dining hall. There are
three week-long sessions:
· Session 1: June 17 - June 21
· Session 2: June 24 – June 28
· Session 3: July 15 - July 19
Free bus transportation from and to Richmond will be provided for Session 2. A bus will pick up students
in Richmond on Sunday, June 23, and return on Saturday, June 29. Thanks to sponsorship by Bradley
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, CEED was able to provide scholarships for students

in Richmond/Henrico County for the first and second sessions. Scholarship awards are based on self-
reported financial information in the parent form.
