After years of building our academic mentorship business, we’ve decided to tackle one of our long-held goals: providing pro bono support to students from communities that are underrepresented in higher education. Throughout the 2021 calendar year, ESM mentors will devote at least 10% of their collective time to working with scholarship students in our equity program. These scholarships will be provided for two services. First, ESM will identify 24 students who will receive free one-on-one college counseling, test prep, and academic tutoring from ESM mentors throughout the entirety of 2021. Additionally, ESM will provide 20 full scholarships for students to attend one of our week-long college prep summer camps in Lake Tahoe, California in July 2021 (assuming COVID restrictions are lifted).
