Through the Park Scholarships experience, scholars derive great benefit from the dedicated guidance of respected professors, who connect them with opportunities for professional development and who assist them in planning class enrichment experiences. The scholars develop their skills in a first-year seminar, and during their four years, they assume challenging roles in campus community organizations. As public servants, they engage in service activities each semester, whether by volunteering at a local agency or by identifying a societal need and planning an original project to address it.
Scholars are given key resources for success, including access to an online community and a vast network of alumni who can connect them with summer and post-graduate opportunities. Prestigious speakers from corporate, government, and academic spheres meet with students as a regular feature of the program. This uniquely crafted set of opportunities provides Park Scholars with the stepping stones to achieve their goals.
