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 mentorsand 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.
First-gen Summer Scholars will have the opportunity to attend the student-organized first-gen national AL1GN conference (limited availability; application-based). Summer Scholars who are part of an academic track will form lasting connections with administrators from their school or college.
This year's virtual Summer Scholars program will be engaging, meaningful and filled with many opportunities to get involved and form connections with your peers. Each year former Summer Scholars return as mentors, and this year's group wants to let you know what their experience was like and answer some frequently asked questions. We all look forward to Zooming through the summer with you!
