The Oliver Scholars Program prepares extraordinary New York City students of African and Latino descent for success at leading independent high schools and prestigious colleges. We provide crucial support for our Scholars so that they can realize their full potential and ultimately give back to the city, the nation, and the world.
This is a story that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face...
Dear Friends and Supporters of the Oliver Scholars Program,
Earlier this week, almost fifty 12 and 13 year-old students gathered in lower Manhattan. They came from 33 middle schools across all five boroughs. They were artists, athletes, and authors, and they represented the top 10 percent of their respective 7th grade classes. Selected from over 600 nominees from across New York City, they were the Oliver Scholars class of 2019.
The true value of the Oliver Scholars Program is best demonstrated through the words and deeds of our Scholars and alumni. In this space we will share their stories. For example, Chanel Duncan wrote Oliver Echoes for us last summer. If you are a Scholar and wish to tell us your story, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
