CSEI 2021 Application

Application will be posted in mid-October

While our hope is that CSEI 2021 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.

Student applications will be available from mid-October through early December.

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 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 a January interview with notification of acceptance by early March. Students must commit to participating in the entire 2021 CSEI  program runs for 4 weeks in July beginning the first Monday after July 4th.
