Welcome, Rising Scholars!
The Rising Scholars program was created to support students who were previously incarcerated or had other experiences with the criminal justice system, or who have been affected by a family member’s incarceration.
Our mission is to create a pathway into higher education and to serve students from enrollment through graduation, by addressing their academic and social needs.
