Pitzer College 
Pitzer College's Fall Diversity Program is October 13 to October 15, 2019. The program is designed specifically for high school seniors from underrepresented backgrounds attending school in the United States. Students will have an opportunity to experience the distinct atmosphere that defines Pitzer College while interacting with current students, faculty, staff and other prospective students. 

The Fall Diversity Program is all-expense-paid and covers round-trip transportation (air, train, bus, gas/mileage reimbursement). Attendees will be hosted by current students in the residence halls and will dine on campus throughout the three-day program.

Interested students need to submit an application by Monday, August 26, 2019, and requires an essay as well as a copy of the student's high school transcript through their junior year. You can find out more information regarding the Diversity Program, as well as a link to the application, by visiting our website.

Who is it for?
Wellesley encourages applicants from underrepresented cultural backgrounds such as African American, Asian American, Hispanic/Latina American, Native American; first-generation students; and/or students from other underrepresented communities. The travel grant selection committee will also prioritize inviting students from families with limited financial resources, regardless of cultural or racial background.

Transportation to and from campus, meals, and overnight housing (with a current student!). Family members are welcome to attend Discover Wellesley Weekend, but the grant only covers travel for the student.

Perspectives on Pomona (POP!)
The Perspectives on Pomona (POP!) fall fly-in program welcomes students from diverse backgrounds who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education (including low-income, first-generation, rural, and those from underrepresented ethnic or racial groups) to experience the Pomona College campus.

During POP! prospective students will have the opportunity to meet current students, speak with faculty and explore the Pomona College community. Although space is limited due to the small size of our engaged community, we are dedicated to providing this opportunity to those whom the program will most benefit.

All POP! participants are provided with on-campus housing, meals and shuttle transportation between local airports and Pomona College. Travel grants are available to cover airfare expenses.
