The Grove Scholars Program provides an intensive academic program to encourage and facilitate academic success and job placement among Mississippi resident STEM majors who have also received the Ole Miss Opportunity Scholarship. The program is unique in that it will have a strong focus on career-readiness. It is intensive in nature and takes a year-round approach to student development. Grove Scholars begins with bridge program the summer before students traditionally come to campus and uses an incentive-based model to encourage students to perform in the classroom, become involved on campus, and make the most of summers and other breaks in the academic calendar.
