THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THE PATH TO COLLEGE FELLOWSHIP
Our fellowship program is an elite three-year academic development and college preparation program. Our goal is to help low-income, high-achieving students remove any and all barriers to reaching the highest peak of their academic potential. Our program offers training and enrichment in entrance exam preparation, financial guidance, college counseling, and offers a broad range of opportunities that seek to educate our fellows on the pressing issues of our time and community. Students with an interest in civics, academics, politics and communication will be greatly served by our program; however, we accept students with interest as diverse in nature as their backgrounds. As an integral member within our fellowship program, each generation of students will design and implement a capstone project that will provide a marked benefit to our community. To culminate the program, the students will write and design a publication to help educate their peers about events and issues most pressing to recent graduates. Finally, after naming the valedictorian of the Path to College Fellowship program, we will offer them a competitive scholarship. We are excited to meet you. Please let us know if you have any questions about the application.
Thank you for applying to the Path to College Fellowship. We appreciate the hard work and determination you bring to your life everyday, and we look forward to working with you to help you reach your academic goals and to help your community at large.
Two letters of recommendation and your high school transcript* are submitted along with your application due June 5, 2017. Finalists will be notified in the beginning of July. Orientation takes place in the end of August.
*We review academic transcripts to learn about an applicant’s academic pursuits and course load, however, we believe grades and GPA are subjective and do not reflect a candidate’s sophistication of thought, integrity, or the ability to contribute to society and the Path to College Fellowship. Far more significant are the personal essay sections and letters of recommendation, which offer a foundation for applicants to tell their stories, express their unique interests, and describe their relationship to the community.
