Welcome, Scholars!



Amazingly, it’s seems like just yesterday we welcome you and your family to the Rutgers Future Scholars program.  Remember to keep the spirit of the Rutgers Future Scholars Program in mind when you awake in the morning and prepare for a new day, as you walk through your schools and interact with your friends and teachers, and when you return home to your studies. Try your best to motivate and empower oneself and inspire other Scholars and youth to excel academically and socially.  As you continue to grow and evolve over the next few years, the Rutgers Future Scholars Program looks forward to helping you prepare for your future.
