Applications for University for Young People, Baylor University's summer enrichment program for gifted and talented Central Texas elementary and high school students, are available now at the Center for Community Learning and Enrichment in the School of Education.

The deadline to apply is March 31. If a student has attended UYP in the past, there is no need apply again. Course catalogs will be mailed in April to newly accepted students and former participants.

Two UYP sessions will be held in June for students entering first through fourth grades in the fall. The first program, the Creative Problem Solving Camp, will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. June 10-14 at Hillcrest Professional Development School, 4201 Pine Ave. A half-day, two-week program for first- through fourth-graders will be held from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. June 17-28 at St. Paul's Episcopal School, 517 Columbus Ave.

Each program costs $150, plus a $20 registration fee, and includes a t-shirt.

For students entering the fourth through 11th grades, UYP offers a variety of classes on subjects such as music, drama, foreign languages, art, science, computers and technology and leadership skills. The two-week sessions, located on the Baylor campus, will be held June 3-14 and June 17-28.

Class registration fees begin at $70, plus a $20 registration fee, which includes a t-shirt. Some classes will have an additional cost because of materials.
