3/18/2020 UPDATE: The Martha Guy Summer Institute, along with Appalachian State University, has been closely monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 virus. For the safety of our students, employees and community, Appalachian is shifting all classes to an online or alternate format and has restricted all travel.  

In response to the latest guidelines issued by our President to limit group interactions to less than 10 people for at least the next 15 days, and because the impact of the COVID-19 virus is now expected to impact our operations into the summer, the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Martha Guy Summer Institute.

Martha Guy Summer Institute

The Martha Guy Summer Institute for future business leaders was created to give high achieving high school students, interested in pursuing a college degree in business, a premier summer experience exploring the different disciplines within business, exposing them to regional business leaders and developing leadership and professional behavior skills needed to be successful in the business realm.

Former participants call the Martha Guy Summer Institute for Future Business Leaders (MGSI) the best summer opportunity available to high school juniors. Since 2004, the institute has provided a select group of students an unparalleled opportunity to learn about business and develop leadership skills in a fun and friendly environment.

The program brings students to Appalachian’s campus to learn about business, and to develop leadership and professional skills. The entire experience is described by all as "amazing!"

The online application will open on December 1, 2019. Please review the admission requirements before submitting your application.
