Scholars Program

CH Scholars Program

The College Horizons Scholars Program is a new academic success program designed for Native American (American Indian, Alaska Native, or Native Hawaiian) CH alumni to improve their transition to college, strengthen their academic accomplishment in college, and increase their preparedness to apply for competitive fellowships, internships, and selective graduate or professional schools. Native students will receive culturally relevant and academically rigorous preparation. The program consists of two parts: a three-week, residential Writing Academy and Wraparound College Advising. The CH Scholars Program is currently limited to CH alumni during year one of the pilot phase. The Scholars Program aims to bolster the number of Native American students who enter and stay in the PhD pipeline.

Program Dates & Location

The inaugural Scholars Program will be held at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin in July-August 2017 for three weeks and is limited to 30 students. Dates and application details will be sent directly to CH alumni in the spring of 2017.

The Scholars Program is being funded by the Mellon Foundation.
