8th Grade Opportunity

The University of Scranton’s University of Success Program, a four-year pre-college mentorship program, is now accepting applications for the academic year that begins this summer. Applicants must be currently enrolled in the eighth grade and possess a strong desire to attend college in the future.

The University of Success is designed to provide academic, social and cultural enrichment to area high school students. The program’s ultimate goal is to assist first-generation college bound students to successfully gain entrance into a college or university.

The University of Success, offered free of charge to participants, is funded almost entirely by corporate and foundation grants.

The program begins with a two-week summer institute, which is held on the campus of The University of Scranton, from Sunday, July 8, to Friday, July 20. Upon completion of the summer program, the students will continue to meet for enrichment sessions through their high school career.

Applications may be obtained by calling the University of Success Office at 570-941-4377 or by emailing Margaret Loughney, University of Success program director, at margaret.loughney@scranton.edu. Applications may also be obtained online from the University of Success web site.

The deadline for submission of applications is Monday, April 2, 2018.
