Solutions Scholars


This program admits a cohort of approximately 20 students each fall to be part of a two year program. These scholars are committed to addressing key challenges facing our world like immigration, inequities facing women, climate change, poverty, human rights, the obesity crisis and more. Course instruction together with experiential learning, research, and internship experiences help develop the skills needed to be the solution to the most pressing issues of our day.

Each Solutions Scholar is supported with a $4,000 scholarship disbursed over two years ($1,000 per semester).
