What are SAIL Programs?


SAIL programs are FREE one-week summer programs hosted on the University of Oregon campus, where high school students learn about various subjects from distinguished University of Oregon faculty members through fun social and interactive activities.  SAIL offers Day and Residential Program options.  The Residential Program is more competitive due to limited capacity, and a completed essay is added to the application.  Students will enjoy packed day and evening activities, as well as an “experience Eugene” evening.  Come join us!
