    The Urban Scholars Program at the University of Massachusetts Boston, is a year-round program featuring advanced after-school classes, seminars, tutoring, and supervised study. Urban Scholars has a very diverse student body from both middle and high school. Find out more!

    The Urban Scholars Program is a year-round program structured around after-school classes and an intensive seven-week summer institute at the University of Massachusetts Boston. 

    The mission of the Urban Scholars Program is to identify and to prepare Boston’s gifted and talented urban youth (ages 11-19), especially those who are low-income individuals and first-generation college bound students, to successfully enroll in and complete college.

    We provide these students with the skills and attitudes necessary to achieve their full potential through a structured sequence of after-school and summer academic courses and activities designed to build a strong repertoire of basic and higher-level skills, task commitment and self-motivation.

    Our vision recognizes that the progress of society depends on developing the talent potential of its youth.
