Own your Education


The 2014 Provost Summer Mentorship Program



The Provost Summer Mentorship Program is an innovative four-week experience, aiming to inspire first-generation and minority students in Philadelphia to view higher education as an achievable and worthwhile goal. Students selected for the program are provided the opportunity to partner with, and learn from, the five professional schools here at the University. These include the Penn School of Dental Medicine, Penn Nursing, Penn Engineering, Perelman School of Medicine, and Penn Law. Over the course of the program, admitted high school students gain first-hand experience in chosen academic disciplines and the opportunity to explore a variety of career opportunities.
