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 for first-semester incoming freshman students.
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.
Students must comply with the following requirements in order to maintain their MAP status and funding:
Compete and pass the summer bridge program
Complete 10 tutoring hours in the Writing Center and/or Academic Resource Center
Attend weekly study sessions in the Center for Inclusion if you fall below a 2.8 GPA cumulative
Enroll in and pass the Atlas Passport Class
Complete 15 hours of community service per semester in the Clark Center
Attend four campus events per semester
Participate in at least one club/organization meeting during the Fall semester
