H.O.P.E. Scholars Initiative

In the Fall of 2016 the H.O.P.E (Helping Others Pursue Education) Scholars program was created to improve the retention and degree completion rates of underrepresented minorities attending Seminole State College. The program provides personal, academic, social, professional, and leadership development to underrepresented minorities, in an effort to positively impact academic success, increase retention, and develop  successful graduate leaders of tomorrow.
