Program Description

The Simon Scholars Program supports students who demonstrate resilience in the face of economic and life challenges. Our scholars, who are among the first in their family to pursue a college education, embody determination, persistence, optimism, gratitude and enthusiasm. Our community of scholars views higher education as a pathway to a successful and fulfilling life. We strive to facilitate meaningful opportunities for our scholars to better know themselves as individuals, family members, and community members, while assisting them in attaining a college degree.
