Legacy Scholars

Pilot program launching Fall 2021!

Legacy Scholars targets historically underrepresented students who demonstrate a strong commitment to their education and are interested in pursuing post-baccalaureate opportunities.  Through an extensive application process, scholars will be in selected to participate in this two-year cohort model designed to help them discover their fullest potential beyond a four-year degree.  Whether students plan to pursue graduate school or other post-baccalaureate opportunities, this program will address individual needs while providing a sense of community among peers, staff members, and faculty.  But even more, the program is designed to create a place where dreams are created and future legacies are shaped.

Ideal candidates should be junior-standing at the start of the Fall 2021 semester with plans to graduate Spring 2023. Students must demonstrate strong academic potential and be from an underrepresented ethnic/racial minority group, and/or be eligible for federal Pell Grant, and/or be a first generation college student.
