Equity Scholars Program

What is the Equity Scholars Program?

Student ProspectusPartner Prospectus

After years of building our academic mentorship program, we are delighted to be in a place where we can tackle one of our long-term goals: providing pro-bono mentorship to students from underserved communities. Throughout each academic year, ESM mentors devote at least 10% of their collective time to working with students who might not otherwise have access to their services.

Our Equity Scholars Program provides selected scholars with the full breadth of ESM’s mentoring: one-on-one college counseling, essay coaching, test preparation, and academic tutoring, as well as membership in ESM’s Alumni Network!

Who is eligible for the program?

In order to be eligible for the Equity Scholars Program, students must:

  • Be a first generation college student OR a member of a racial group that is underrepresented in higher education.
