Become an Unconquered Scholar

Since its inception in 2012, the Unconquered Scholars Program has provided support to more than forty students. Each fall, up to 20 students from across the state become Unconquered Scholars. By participating in the Program, participants form strong bonds with a network of students, faculty, and staff who promote academic success and personal development.
