The Buck Scholars Association provides high school sophomores with mentorship, guidance, and funding through The Buck Fellows Program.

Mentor - that’s what really got my eye. Talking to my mentor and just having a plan. Having somebody there to answer all my questions. How does college work? What’s college life like? I just want to learn, learn, learn.

You have a lot of access to a variety of people. People from different backgrounds, with different goals they wanted to achieve growing up.
