Hiram College’s Emerging Scholars Program gives promising students the boost they need to succeed in college.

Incoming freshmen selected for the program are accepted to Hiram College with additional conditions. With limited spacing, the program accepts students on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Hiram’s Emerging Scholars Program provides specialized academic support to keep students on track of their studies. Designed to help students succeed at Hiram, the program requires Emerging Scholars to:

  • Live on campus
  • Take prescribed courses
  • Attend mandatory weekly tutoring and success coaching sessions
  • Participate in biweekly faculty advising
  • Attend two mandatory Emerging Scholars events
  • Complete an end-of-year Emerging Scholars Reflection essay

Emerging Scholars who complete the program have the preparation they need to graduate from Hiram College with a bachelor’s degree in four years.
