This summer the NYU School of Professional Studies High School Academy will launch the Discover Program, a new one-week college prep and immersion program for high school students from underrepresented communities across the United States (outside of the New York metro/tri-state area), who will be first-generation college students.
Students apply as sophomores for the one-week NYC-based summer intensive and continue their progress throughout the academic year via an online mentorship. Successful applicants to the program must show academic improvement in high school and must be active in their local or school community.
Each student admitted into the program will receive a full scholarship that covers tuition, housing, and meals for the one-week summer intensive.
This program will include workshops on:
• The college experience and expectations • College options
• College financial aid • College application timeline and plan
• Resources for standardized testing • College essay writing
Application Deadline: April 15, 2016
Program Dates: July 17–July 23
Orientation: Sunday, July 17 • Check out: Saturday, July 23
