Junior Scholars

What is Junior Scholars? 

Junior Scholars, Reed's spring travel scholarship, invites a highly qualified group of high school juniors from historically underrepresentedracial and ethnic backgrounds to visit Reed. All air travel, on-campus meals, and on-campus lodging will be covered by the college.

Visiting Reed is transformative. We have a saying here that "only Reed feels like Reed" and we make sure that all of our campus visitors have the opportunity to truly engage with our community.

As part of this program, Junior Scholars will be able to:
• stay overnight with a current Reed student;
• attend classes of interest;
• enjoy meals with current Reed students;
• learn more about Reed through an information session and campus tour.

When will Junior Scholars visit? 

As part of your application, you will list three dates on which you are available to visit Reed between February 25 and March 23, excluding March 12-16. Available dates between February 25 and March 23 can be seen on this calendar. If you are accepted into the program, you will be assigned a visit date from your preferred dates.
