The Hill-Lopes Scholars Program will encourage mentoring and a supportive community from the beginning of the program by using a vertical cohort model.
Scholarship awards are being distributed to students across the continuum of the undergraduate experience. This will establish a cohort of Hill-Lopes Scholars with different levels of the undergraduate experience from the onset of the program. Upper-level students (e.g. juniors and seniors) will develop mentoring and other skills as they support freshman and sophomore students both personally and academically.
