Description

The Cooperman College Scholars program aims to help highly motivated, academically talented students with financial need enter and succeed in college. Beginning in the summer after 11th grade, Cooperman College Scholars provides four phases of support and programming:

3-Week Summer Academy

The summer after 11th grade, students participate in a free, three-week summer experience hosted on one of our four partner-college campuses. Scholars take classes taught by college faculty, live on campus, and receive early exposure to college life.

College Application Support

During senior year, students participate in an 11-month High School-through-College program that aims to help Scholars prepare for college (including SAT test preparation), complete the college application and financial aid process and successfully transition to college.

4-Year Scholarships to College

Scholars who successfully complete the Summer Academy, graduate from high school, and enroll in a four-year college are eligible to receive a four-year scholarship, which helps pay for tuition, room-and-board, books, and other fees.

Cooperman Mentoring Program

In collaboration with partner institutions, Cooperman College Scholars will participate in a mentoring program designed to ease students’ transition to college. Scholars who attend partner institutions will be assigned faculty and peer mentors who serve as dedicated resources during the early college years.


To be eligible for the program, applicants must:

  • Be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident
  • Be an Essex County, NJ Resident
  • Demonstrate Financial Need
  • Be an Essex County High School Student in 11th grade
  • Have a 2.75 GPA or Above
  • Commit to a 3-Week Summer Academy
