Richard Rubin Scholar Mentoring Program

Now in its tenth year, the Program's fundamental objective is to advance the academic, inter-personal, social, and professional success of Swarthmore College students who are from disadvantaged backgrounds and/or first generation students attending college. The Program is open to currently enrolled freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Students selected for the Program will have a campus mentor - faculty or staff - to guide them during their time at the college and after working with their campus mentor for one year (sophomore year), they will be eligible to apply for a 4-6 week summer internship and placed with alumni or friends of the college in their field of interest.

Students will be considered for the Rubin Scholar Mentoring Program through two routes: they can be nominated by a faculty or staff member with whom they already have a mentoring relationship, or they can self-nominate and ask a faculty/staff member to sponsor them, and become their campus mentor.

Applications will be available in January 2014.
