    Penn State's S.C.O.P.E. 2019

    This summer, the Office of Multicultural Programs in the College of Education will once again sponsor the Summer College Opportunity Program in Education (S.C.O.P.E.).  This program provides high school sophomores of diverse backgrounds interested in education careers (teaching, counseling, rehabilitation, educational policy or administration) the opportunity to experience college life while earning credit for college work.

    S.C.O.P.E. is a four (4) week academic program during which students take several courses including an English language and composition course, and a college preparatory/SAT course.  The program will run from Sunday June 23, 2018 through Friday July 19, 2019, at the University Park campus.

    All living expenses (room and board) and academic expenses (fees, books and other school supplies) are paid for by the Office of Multicultural Programs in the College of Education and the Office of the Vice Provost for Educational Equity.  The program is very challenging academically as well as socially, but students having completed the program leave with a renewed sense of potential and determination.  It is our hope to prepare students for a successful college experience.  Overall, S.C.O.P.E. is a wonderful opportunity through which students get a feel for education careers, college life in general and Penn State in particular.

    To be eligible, a student must meet the following criteria:

    be of a background traditionally underrepresented in the education profession

    be currently enrolled in sophomore year (10th grade) of high school

    be enrolled in a college prep curriculum and planning to attend a four-year college or university

    have a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better

    be interested in a career in the Education field (teaching, counseling, rehabilitation, special education, vocational education, educational policy, etc.)

    We also concentrate our efforts in the recruitment of potential first generation College students and students with limited financial resources.

    The S.C.O.P.E. application requires the nomination of the school guidance counselor, Future Educators Association Advisor, or other school/program official.  S.C.O.P.E. is actively recruiting students interested in careers in the field of education.  We recognize that students in their sophomore year of high school are often still exploring career interests; however, because of limited space, our focus is on those students showing interest in education professions.  We are asking that nominators fully consider their candidate and evaluate that individual’s interest in working in the educational field. Due to the high number of applications we receive, we will be screening candidates very carefully.  The nomination and letters of recommendation will be an important factor in our selection process; however, a nomination is not tantamount to an applicant’s acceptance.

    The application due date (postmark date) is February 1, 2019.  Applications, along with additional recommendation and nomination forms may be downloaded from our website: http://www.ed.psu.edu/educ/multicultural-programs/summer-program.  For further information about the program or application procedures, do not hesitate to contact our office at the above address or phone number.  We look forward to working with you and your students.
