Louisiana State University Summer Scholars (SS)
This program is an eight-week summer program that prepares high achieving under-represented minority students to make a successful transition from high school to college. The program is only open for 2015 high school graduates who have applied and are eligible for enrollment at Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College for Fall 2015. Summer Scholars makes a lasting impression on all who attend, giving participants the opportunity to become adjusted to the academic, personal, and social challenges they may face as new freshmen. The weekly meetings with campus faculty, staff and administrators give the participants a head start on the fall semester. The participants are able to establish their own sense of community before they are joined by more than 5,500 of their fellow freshman classmates in the fall!
There are tutoring sessions that teach learning strategies and exciting programs on leadership development. The participants will be enrolled in 6 credit hours. The enrichment trips include places, such as the Houston Museum of Natural Science, Tangipahoa African American Heritage Museum in Hammond, World War II Museum in New Orleans, STENNIS Space Museum, in Stennis Center, MS, and the Brooks Museum of Art and the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee.
The program awards SCHOLARSHIPS covering tuition, housing, and a meal plan!
