Fly-In Focus: Discover Swarthmore

Comments Off on Fly-In Focus: Discover Swarthmore 19 May 2016


Held at Swarthmore College each fall, Discover Swarthmore offers high-achieving high school seniors the chance to participate in an all-expenses-paid overnight program on their campus in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania.   Transportion to and from campus, meals and lodging are all provided at no cost to students courtesy of the Swarthmore Admissions department.

During the program (which will occur in two different sessions: Thursday, September 15 – Saturday, September 17, 2016 or
Thursday, October 20 – Saturday, October 22, 2016) students will attend actual Swarthmore classes, live in on-campus housing with current students, eat in the dining hall, and participate in campus events. Students will also learn more about campus from informal conversations and panel discussions with staff, faculty, alumni and current students.

The program is open to all rising high school seniors interested in Swarthmore College, with preference given to first-gen, low-income students, as well as those from underrepresented backgrounds.  Students can apply to Discover Swarthmore directly (deadline is July 31, 2016.) While a nomination is not required to attend, counselors, teachers, and CBO advisors are encouraged to nominate their students by June 30th, 2016.
