Virginia Commonwealth University’s Summer Scholars is an exciting five-week program that gives you a head start on your path to VCU, graduation and beyond.
You’ll take classes, earn credits and build a group of close friends before starting your first semester in the fall.
This program is by invitation only. Class size is limited with priority going to first-generation college students.
What is a first-generation college student?
If neither of your parents or legal guardians earned a bachelor's degree, then you are a first-generation college student. If you have siblings, they're first-gen too.
Everyone's circumstances are unique. If you do not fit this description and identify as first-gen, let us know!
Don't wait! Apply online today to be a Summer Scholar.
