Manhattanville Advancement Program

The Manhattanville Advancement Program (MAP) is a scholarship program that provides educational opportunity and support to economically disadvantaged students. The MAP scholarship is a four-year commitment.

Students receive a broad range of services including academic, personal, and career counseling. Beyond the traditional academic focus of most scholarship programs, MAP encourages the development of the student as a whole — intellectually, ethically and socially. Students are encouraged towards these aims by fostering community service, student leadership development, and goal-oriented self-management.


Sound academic guidance and mentoring with a MAP counselor are provided throughout the four years.  Career and graduate school counseling, including Manhattanville’s comprehensive Internship Program, give students the opportunity to relate their studies to the “real” world of employment.

The Pre-Freshman Summer Program

The Pre-Freshman Summer program for incoming MAP and Invest in Success students will take place from Sunday, August 10th through Wednesday, August 20th.  Entering MAP students are required to attend the fully funded, co-curriculr freshman summer program, which allows them to become acclimated to all aspects of college life.  The program provides an academic foundation for the next four years; students participate in preparatory seminars, workshops, social activities, study groups and individual tutoring.
