Windows on Williams

Windows on Williams (WOW) gives high school seniors the opportunity to spend three all-expenses-paid days at Williams. WOW is a selective program open to high school students in the U.S. and Puerto Rico; preference is given to high-achieving students who couldn’t otherwise afford to visit Williams.

WOW participants stay in dorms with current students, attend classes, meet with professors and learn about our admission process and extraordinary financial aid program.

The fall 2024 WOW dates are Sunday, October 6 to Tuesday, October 8. We recognize these dates may not work for any number of reasons, including school commitments or other conflicts. If you’re interested in learning more about Williams outside of WOW, you can do so on our website and through some of our virtual programming.

The deadline to apply for WOW is Thursday, August 1. There are two ways to apply:

  1. You may complete the full WOW application form OR
  2. If you have applied to the QuestBridge College Prep Scholars (CPS) program, you can use that application instead. 

Either way, your starting point will be this form. If you opt for the latter, we will arrange for delivery of your CPS application with QuestBridge.
