These are opportunities geared towards first-generation college students that you might consider exploring - these are great opportunities to apply to:
- Health P.A.S.S. Program - this program through DesMoines University is a great way for promising first-generation college sophomores and juniors to prepare for and enhance their chances of getting into medical school and other health professions programs. The three-week program is high-quality, hands-on and FREE. Housing, meals, and transportation is provided to selected participants.
- Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (SUROP) at Kansas State University (KSU) gives undergraduates from under-represented groups, including first-generation college students, a first-hand experience with the research process. This experience is designed to help students prepare for graduate school and other advanced study. Participation in a program such as SUROP provides a first-hand look at the process and excitement of discovery through research and such experience is viewed favorably by the admissions committees for graduate and professional schools. This program provides selected participants with a stipend, travel costs, and housing/meals during the summer program.
- TELACU Scholarship Program - this is a scholarship program that low-income, first-generation college students are eligible to apply for and this program is more than a scholarship program as it provides resources to assist TELACU Scholars in their transition into college as well as in the workplace.
- CLEO Scholars - CLEO (Council on Legal Education Opportunity) is a nonprofit entity of the American Bar Association whose mission is to diversify the legal profession. The CLEO program offers great programs and resources for our pre-law first-generation college students.
These are great additional opportunities to consider open to all students:
- Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program at Chapman - this is a great opportunity to have a paid summer fellowship on campus with a faculty member in addition to professional programming, social events, and other activities designated for this group of SURF participants. This program is a great opportunity for students interested in pursuing graduate study and research.
- Amgen Scholars - this program has the goal of increasing learning and networking opportunities for undergraduate students committed to pursuing science or engineering careers with an interest in pursuing a Ph.D. or M.D.-Ph.D.; and to spark the interest and broaden the perspective of undergraduate students considering scientific careers. Sophomores, juniors, and non-graduating seniors are eligible to apply. There are several host universities that students can apply to.
