Freedom Summer Collegiate

Drawing inspiration from the 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer, Freedom Summer Collegiate is working towards educational equity by collaborating with partner programs to bring the nation’s most promising future academics to students who face significant obstacles on the road to college. We recruit, train, and fund doctoral candidates to provide transformative summer seminars to college-bound high school students in underserved communities.
