THE 10,000 DEGREES INSTITUTE

10,000 Degrees students at University of San Francisco

The 10,000 Degrees Institute is a college success program that focuses on supporting seniors from low income backgrounds to matriculate to and through college. We firmly believe in supporting students in reaching their full potential regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, documentation status, or socioeconomic background. We do not have a GPA requirement.

 

Students begin their participation in the program through a two day, one night Summer Intensive experience at a local college campus. Students gain exposure to the college process through a series of workshops and cohort bonding activities. Students will experience life as a college student, live with a roommate, and be empowered with the resources to explore, choose, and pay for college.

 

This year’s 10,000 Degrees Summer Intensive will be held in six separate overnight sessions from July 22 – August 2.

 

After the Summer Intensive, students are paired with a 10,000 Degrees Fellow who will work with them in achieving the necessary steps for the college process. Students are expected to attend weekly meetings where they focus on matriculation steps such as completing college applications and financial aid.

 

Once students begin their college careers, they will continue to be part of the 10,000 Degrees program until they successfully graduate.

  1. Be a current junior who will be a senior in fall 2019
