The Cornerstone Summer Institute is a week-long summer camp at the University of Virginia where high school students learn about slavery and its legacies by exploring the University, Charlottesville, and area landmarks. The camp provides rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors with the opportunity to engage in historical investigation, archaeological excavation, and community engagement in order to learn and develop thinking skills that will prepare them for success in college and beyond. 

Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis until APRIL 1, 2020. Some financial aid is available for students with demonstrated need. To find the application and learn more, go to http://slavery.virginia.edu/cornerstone-summer-institute/

Dates: June 20-26, 2020
