ABOUT SUMMER SCHOLARS

LSU University College’s Summer Scholars is an eight-week summer bridge program that prepares selected under-represented minority students to make a successful transition from high school to the University. This summer experience offers students the opportunity to become adjusted to the academic, personal, and social challenges that may encounter at LSU. Students are provided with a structured environment conducive to building the fundamental skills necessary to enhance the likelihood of successful completion of a baccalaureate degree.

“Summer Scholars helps students pursue their dream of coming to LSU. The program has Tiger Exploration talks where various speakers share with us specifics of their industry and resources to help us in our lives at the university. The program provides me the opportunity to get one step ahead of the game."
