Richard Rubin Scholar Mentoring Program 2017

Applications for the Richard Rubin Scholar Mentoring Program are now available. Now in its twelfth year, the program's fundamental objective is to advance the academic, inter-personal, social, and professional success of Swarthmore College students who are from low income, disadvantaged backgrounds and/or first generation students attending college. The program is open to currently enrolled freshmen and sophomores. Students selected for the program will have a campus mentor - faculty or staff - to guide them during their time at the college. After working with their campus mentor for one year (sophomore year) they will be eligible to apply for funding for an  internship

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.
