College Scholars Program


SEEDS’ newest program – the College Scholars Program – is a 17-month immersion experience built upon the success of SEEDS’ College Preparatory Program (CPP). It is designed to prepare and place top-performing, low-income students from public high schools in highly competitive colleges with excellent preparation and sufficient financial aid.

College Scholars is a free program that provides students with:

  • Academic coursework
  • Comprehensive college search (campus tours, visits from college representatives, counseling, mentoring, and fly-in weekend applications)
  • College essay development
  • Test preparation
  • Personal application support
  • Professional financial aid advocacy and assistance
  • Life skills for college and beyond
  • Guidance during the first two years of college

College Scholars begin academic classes with SEEDS on Saturdays during the spring of their junior year, followed by a three-week summer residency on a college campus. College Scholars resume academic classes each Saturday during senior year (fall – spring).

Following graduation from SEEDS and matriculation in college, College Scholars will receive SEEDS’ Guidance and on-campus support through sophomore year in college.

SEEDS is now recruiting College Scholars! To learn more about our eligibility requirements and admissions process, please visit SEEDS’ Admissions page.

Thanks to AT&T for supporting the College Scholars Program.
