We predict a strong enhancement of the critical temperature in a conventional Bardeen-Cooper-
Schrieffer (BCS) superconductor in the presence of a bosonic condensate of exciton-polaritons. The
effect depends strongly on the ratio of the cutoff frequencies for phonon and exciton-polariton mediated
BCS superconductivity, respectively. We also discuss a possible design of hybrid semiconductorsuperconductor
structures suitable for the experimental observation of such an effect.
