To be eligible for the Act Six Scholarship program, applicants must:
While ethnicity and family income are considered, there are no income restrictions, and students from all racial and ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to apply. There is no minimum GPA requirement, but admissions standards vary across the partner colleges. In general, applicants with a GPA below 3.0 will need to demonstrate their readiness for academic success in college through their recommendations, essays, and/or test scores.
The application process includes an online application, essay questions, recommendations, and a group interview. The selection process also places high value on applicants' teamwork, critical thinking, communication skills, and academic potential.
Selected scholars will participate in a six-month training program that prepares them for leadership roles on campus and in their communities. This includes intensive workshops on leadership development, social justice, diversity, and community building.
