CSEI 2022 Application

CSEI 2022 Application Link

To support the need for flexibility, CSEI is waiting a little longer than usual to post information about the summer of 2022. Please check back with us by early October for updates.
While our hope is that CSEI 2022 will meet in person and on-sites throughout Richmond, we are prepared for in-person, blended or virtual learning with the use of technology tools.

All high school juniors living in the greater metro Richmond area including but not limited to the City of Richmond, the Town of Ashland, and the Counties of Charles City, Chesterfield, Dinwiddie, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, Powhatan and New Kent are invited to apply.

A school teacher, coach or administrator recommendation is required with application. Learn more about the required recommendation here.

Finalists will be selected for an interview with notification of acceptance in the spring. Students must commit to participating in the entire 2022 CSEI program that runs for 4 weeks in July beginning Tuesday, July 5.
