Multicultural Visit Program

The Multicultural Visit Program (MVP) is a selective, all-expenses-paid visit program for high-achieving high school seniors who have not yet had the opportunity to visit campus. We encourage applications from students from underrepresented communities including black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Latino/a, or Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander.

To support socioeconomic diversity, the selection committee will also consider students from families with limited financial resources, regardless of cultural or racial background, as well as those who are among the first in their families to attend college (first generation). Registration for Fall 2018 programs will open in Summer 2018.
