Grove Scholars is an emerging scholars program for students who qualify for The Ole Miss Opportunity Scholarship and are pursuing a STEM degree or health related profession at the University of Mississippi. Employing a cohort model, an incentive structure, and a summer bridge program, Grove Scholars works to close the gap between access and equity for Mississippi resident students beginning prior to freshmen year through graduation.
