LSU Summer Scholars Program for Seniors
College-bound, minority seniors who would like to apply to the 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. This exciting program makes a lasting impression on all who attend. Summer Scholars gives participants the opportunity to become adjusted to the academic, personal, and social challenges they often 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 a thousand 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 program awards SCHOLARSHIPS covering tuition, housing, and a meal plan! The enrichment trips include places, such as the World War II Museum in New Orleans, STENNIS SpaceMuseum, in Stennis Center, MS, and the Brooks Museum of Art and the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee.
We invite you to visit Summer Scholars site on the Louisiana State University (lsu.edu) webpage www.lsu.edu/ssp.
