Once a Summer Scholar, always a Summer Scholar

Summer Scholars status does not end with the conclusion of the program. Participating students receive ongoing support straight through graduation. Perks include, but are not limited to:

  • Access to personalized resources through Summer Studies and Special Programs (Hibbs Hall, Room 201)
  • Guidance from peer mentors and the opportunity to become a mentor after freshman year
  • Mid-year reunions to catch up with Summer Scholar friends and meet Summer Scholars from prior years
  • Opportunity to attend the student-organized first-gen national AL1GN conference (limited availability; application-based)
  • Opportunities to participate in special events like the National First-Gen College Celebration Day
