Greetings from Swarthmore College!


Discover Swarthmore affords students the opportunity to visit one of the best liberal arts colleges in the country, all expenses paid (including flight/ground transportation, lodging, meals).  The program will provide participants with a taste of the college experience, including the opportunity to meet other talented students, learn from faculty members, eat in our dining hall, and spend a few nights in our residence halls with student hosts.
We are holding the two DS programs on the following dates:
Thursday, September 15 – Saturday, September 17, 2016
Thursday, October 20 – Saturday, October 22, 2016
Nomination and Selection Criteria
Discover Swarthmore is open to all rising high school seniors (U.S. citizens, Permanent Resident, and undocumented/DACA students living in the United States), but the selection committee will prioritize applications from students with the following characteristics:

  • Traditionally underrepresented groups (African-American, Hispanic/Latino/a, Native American, Asian-American, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander)
  • First generation in their family to attend college
  • Low-income students, and students who might not otherwise be able to afford a trip to campus
  • Rural students
  • Undocumented and DACA-eligible students

We accept nominations from high school counselors, mentors, CBO advisors, teachers, and any person who may work with a high-achieving student.
Swarthmore College Highlights
If you’re not familiar with Swarthmore College, here are a few highlights:

  • Swarthmore is consistently ranked among the top 3 liberal arts colleges in the country.
  • Located just outside Philadelphia, Swarthmore is only a 25-minute train ride from downtown.
  • Small class sizes enable faculty to provide the support students need.  We have 1,500 students, and nearly 40% of our classes have fewer than ten students.
  • Swarthmore provides need-based financial aid that meets 100% of demonstrated need with loan-free financial aid awardsThe average aid award for 2015-2016 was $47,564.
