Discover Swarthmore

Discover Swarthmore, held in the fall, is an all-expenses-paid overnight program for high-achieving high school seniors. Attendees experience Swarthmore firsthand as they attend classes, stay with current students in their residence halls, eat in the dining hall, and go to campus events. Prospective students hear from faculty, staff, alumni, and current students through a series of panel discussions and informal conversations. CBO advisors, teachers, or counselors can nominate students via the online application. Student applications are also being accepted, and are due by July 16, 2018.

2018 The Nantucket Project Scholars Program

The Nantucket Project Scholars Program supports socially conscious leaders with purpose-driven projects to reach their full potential. The program begins each year at The Nantucket Project (TNP), a four day festival of ideas on the island in September, where Scholars participate in hands-on workshops. Over the course of a year TNP works with Scholars, individually and as a group, to provide them with knowledge, influential relationships, and a platform for their work. Applications for the 2018 TNP Scholars Program close at 5:00 pm on May 7, 2018.
