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.

Guidance

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

Entering MAP students are required to attend a fully funded, three-week pre-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.

Resident Tutors/Counselors (RTC)

Resident Tutors/Counselors (RTC) are needed for the Centers for Student Success Pre-Freshman Summer Program for MAP and Invest in Success Scholarship students.

Student Enrichment Program

The Student Enrichment Program consists of a series of workshops during the Fall semester designed to ease the transition to Manhattanville college life. Workshops are led by outside presenters, staff and administrators, which span such topics as time management, study skills, exploring community resources, and advising. It is a zero-credit course, but it will appear on your transcript and it is taken Pass/Fail. Students will be pre-registered for this course.
