The University of Pennsylvania’s Provost Summer Mentorship Program is a four-week experience that aims to inspire first-generation and underrepresented 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, five professional schools, including the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School. Over the course of the program at the Law School, admitted high school students experience what law school is like, what it means to be a lawyer, and what role the law plays in modern society.
In addition to their educational curriculum, students are offered test prep, financial literacy courses, life skills, college application process assistance/information and other services that help them to hone their skills and strengthen their self-confidence.
This summer, the program will take place July 12, 2021, through August 6, 2021, and is open to rising 11th grade students attending a School District of Philadelphia public or charter high school. Each participant receives a monetary stipend upon successful completion of the program, lunch daily on all programming dates, and a SEPTA TransPass for travel to and from the program.
