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.

Students are encouraged towards these aims by fostering community service, student leadership development, and goal-oriented self-management.
