About Summer Scholars

Summer Scholars 2022

This academically focused, scholarship-supported and by-invitation-only program is designed for first-year VCU students enrolling for fall 2022. We are excited to be including eight different cohorts in this year's Summer Scholars program!

In addition to receiving our ongoing support toward personal, social and academic success, participants in Summer Scholars will jump-start their college experience by having the opportunity to:

  • Take two summer classes and earn six to seven credits.
  • Live in a VCU residence hall.
  • Go whitewater rafting on the James River.
  • Visit the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
  • Take walking tours of the area surrounding VCU's Monroe Park Campus.
  • Participate in community engagement opportunities.
  • And more!
