Attached are general information, program descriptions, application forms and instructions for the twenty-nine 1999 AEGIS programs, which will be offered to junior high and high school students who have demonstrated exceptional abilities in a specific subject area.

We are asking your cooperation in making this information available to interested students who will be in grades 7-12 in 1999-2000 and coordinating the application process. Procedures are outlined on the attached form titled: "AEGIS Application Instructions." Please note and convey to interested students that if selected they are expected to attend the full length of the program. Leaves of absence for other activites or programs will not be granted by program directors. It is, therefore, necessary for students-and families of students-to check calendars before accepting programs.
