Junior Scholars

What is Junior Scholars? 

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. The program is open to juniors (class of 2024) who live in the U.S. 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 an interactive workshop led by Admission Counselors who will help students plan their college essay.
  • 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.
