The PRISM Junior Scholars Program
The PRISM Junior Scholars Program provides eligible students with the guidance and resources needed to become professionals in the fields of science, technology, health, and the NYS-licensed professions. Early in the Program, you will receive tutoring in science and math courses through the Math and Science Resource Center at John Jay and attend workshops on improving your study skills. Through the Program activities, you are exposed to professionals and careers in science, medicine, and technology. You also receive personalized academic advisement and professional development.
To be eligible for the Junior Scholars Program, students must be NY State residents (receive In-State tuition) with a full-time academic load (12 credits or more). Students also must be part of an underrepresented group in science (African-American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian or Alaskan native) OR have financial need as defined by NYS (http://prismatjjay.org/applications/nys-income-eligibility/). Students must maintain a 2.5 GPA as part of the Program.
