Who are the Scholars?

Scholars are high school sophomores or juniors who are interested in learning more about careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) from professionals who are like them and working in these areas. Each year, 30 scholars will be selected to participate in the Cultivate ACCESS program.

Who should apply? Ideal Scholars are any student who is open to learning more about careers in STEM. Scholars do not need to have a background or prior experience in STEM. This program is designed to target students who belong to groups of people that are underrepresented in the STEM-ag career fields, which are women and cultural and/or ethnic minorities.
