Odyssey Scholarship Program

A keystone component of our No Barriers philosophy, the Odyssey Scholarship program provides enhanced academic, social, and career support to students from under-resourced families and/or who are the first in their families to attend college. All students who apply for need-based financial aid are automatically considered for this program; there is no separate application. Learn more about the Odyssey Program.
