Evergreen Multicultural Scholars Program

A student centered learning and community-building program designed to empower and prepare you as a multicultural scholar at Evergreen.

The Evergreen Multicultural Scholars Program will not be taking place in Fall 2020 due to Evergreen's hybrid operations status. 

Fall New Student Orientation will offer First Peoples Multicultural Sessions and Identity-Based Programing for new and incoming students. Students can reach out to us for support or questions at firstpeoples@evergreen.edu.

The Multicultural Scholars program will return for Fall 2021.

This program is designed by and for People of Color and LGBTQ people. If you share these identities you’re highly encouraged to apply!  These programs will fill up early. June 1st is the priority deadline. Have questions, please feel free to ask! 

First offered in 1997, the Evergreen Multicultural Scholars Program introduces incoming students to the Evergreen academic model, provides opportunities to put their learning into practice while exploring vital contemporary issues, and encourages them to build connections with other equity-minded students, faculty and staff.


Multicultural Scholars Program

Cost of the Multicultural Scholars Program is $250.

This cost includes lodging and early move-in for students already signed up to live on campus, meals, supplies and transportation during program field trips. There are several scholarships available, so if you or your family have concerns about the cost of attending the Scholars Program, we will be happy to work with you.

Please note that although our $250 fee does not cover the cost of tuition, the same tuition applies for 10-18 undergraduate credits. Therefore, if you are registered for a 16-credit program you will nt be charged for any additional tuition for participating in the Scholars Program.
