The Rutgers Future Scholars, supporting a legacy of access and excellence at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
The goal of the Rutgers Future Scholars program is to increase the numbers of academically ambitious high school graduates who come from less-advantaged communities, inspire and prepare them meet the standards to be admitted to colleges and universities, and then provide tuition funding to those who are admitted and choose to attend Rutgers University. In short the Rutgers Future Scholars program offers Hope, Opportunity, and Tuition Scholarship
On November 13-15, 2013. The Rutgers Future Scholas program with the generous support from the Charles S. Mott Foundation hosted “Mission: Possible” centering on making college access and completion a reality for all youth and explored the economic, social, and cultural benefits of innovative and effective outreach strategies. The convening welcomed over 250 researchers, program practitioners, K-12 and higher education administrators, funders, corporations, government officials, and policy makers, from across the nation and built on existing college access knowledge to create new strategies for the future.
We extend our sincerest gratitude and respect for your contributions in making Mission: Possible Transforming the Future the College Access a success. We remain humbled by your initial response to the call for proposals, attendance, and feedback of the Convening’s themes and your experience during our three days together. Upon learning of your diverse perspectives and fields of expertise, we’ve become united in a movement to assure equitable outcomes for youth whose lives add extraordinary value to our nation.
