Future Scholars Program

The Future Scholars Program partners African American and African students in grades 9-11 at St. Paul's Arlington High School with University of Minnesota students to explore the steps needed to attend and graduate from college. The University/AHS student mentor pairs are currently working together to address college readiness, community, and educational issues, and will make a group presentation to St. Paul mayor Chris Coleman at the end of the mentoring period. The program was highlighted in a May press release from the University of Minnesota's Office for Equity and Diversity.
