The Upward College Summer Scholars Program is a highly interactive, fun, and intensive policy oriented academic 8-weeks research project that focusing on college access, English training, critical thinking and leadership development. Participants will have opportunities to work on group research projects that emphasize social justice issues currently facing our communities and societies.

Students will then produce academically written papers and present the major research findings, policy and solution recommendation ready to be implemented at the end of the program. The program utilizes the Participatory Action Research model, a process that has emerged more recently as a methodology for societal grassroots change, program development, and evaluation. Each participating student is a “Summer 2024 Scholar” and will receive a stipend.
