Junior Scholars

What is the Junior Scholars program?

Junior Scholars is an in-depth virtual program designed to introduce high-achieving high school juniors to the college search, help them produce a competitive admission application, and answer the unique questions posed by underrepresented students and students of color. All students are welcome to apply. Students will get guidance on the college search and application process, form lasting connections, and learn about life at Reed.

Junior Scholars will:

  • Connect with Milyon Trulove, Vice President and Dean of Admission & Financial Aid.
  • Participate in interactive workshops led by admission counselors who will help students understand application basics and brainstorm essay topics.
  • Attend a workshop led by a financial aid counselor who will demystify the financial aid process.
  • Hear from our professors at a special Q&A event featuring faculty from multiple disciplines.
  • Meet current Reedies and learn about how Reed supports students from diverse backgrounds.

When is the Junior Scholars program?

Junior Scholars takes place virtually October through April. Applications for our spring session were due on March 18, 2024. The application will reopen in fall of 2024.
