Rural Pre-College Program

The Rural Pre-college Program brings to the UW Oshkosh campus Native American, Latino, Hmong and rural Wisconsin high school students who have strong academic and leadership backgrounds and have the potential to become the first in their families to attend college.

Each summer, 10 to 15 students are selected to participate in the week-long program at UW Oshkosh. Students experience college life, stay in a residence hall, attend academic courses in math and language arts and participate in a variety of social and recreational activities. Each day ends with a talking circle which enables the students an opportunity to reflect on what they learned each day.

Students selected to attend the program receive transportation to and from the UW Oshkosh campus. Scholarships are available for qualifying students.
