Academic Year Program
Being a Chesick Scholar also includes benefits during the academic year, and is a long-term commitment for both the College and the student. Chesick Scholars are expected to continue to engage regularly with the following resources throughout their time at Haverford.
- Each student is assigned a faculty mentor/advisor to help support your scholarly interests and help you navigate student life across your four years of college. Chesick Scholars will meet with faculty mentors at the end of the Summer Program to discuss their academic and career goals, work out course selection, and plan for meeting weekly throughout the academic year.
- The program also provides funding (up to $5500 per student) to support summer internships and other professional, academic, and research experiences.
- First-year students attend the Chesick First-Year Seminar every month to foster ongoing connections to the Chesick community while learning more about how to manage their academic and social experiences on campus.
- Ongoing social and academic programming throughout the four years complements targeted professional development/ career-building support.
