The LEAD Scholars Program is for first-generation college students (students whose parents did not graduate from a 4-year college or university) focused on academic success, community engagement and vocational exploration.

This program is open to both first-year students and transfer students with the goal of supporting them throughout their college career.

Happy 20th Anniversary, LEAD! 

We are excited to celebrate the LEAD Scholars Program’s 20th Anniversary throughout 2023! Founded in 2003, the program was originally called the Bridge Program and provided a 2-week transitional program into college for approximately thirty first-generation college students and BIPOC students. Today LEAD provides a four-year comprehensive experience to approximately 420 first-generation college students each year, and has served over 1500 students since 2003. 

We hope that you will join us in celebrating this milestone!!!
