ATTENTION SUPHOMORES: BUCK FELLOWS PROGRAM OPPORTUNITY

Launched in 2014 by the Buck Scholars Association, the Buck Fellows Program is designed to help talented Northern California high school students who demonstrate high academic and leadership potential, but who lack resources, support, and guidance to fully realize that potential.

The Buck Fellows Program offers Fellows expert guidance for applying to colleges, funding for academic and artistic enrichment opportunities, and workshops to cultivate resiliency and leadership. In addition, Buck Fellows have access to a thriving network of highly successful individuals in a diverse range of fields. All of these individuals grew up in Northern California and many of them—including doctors, actors, engineers, TV journalists, filmmakers, lawyers, writers, professors, and entrepreneurs—have dedicated themselves to individually mentoring Buck Fellows and helping them shape and pursue their dreams.

Strong candidates for the Buck Fellows Program are high school sophomores who excel in their classes, impress teachers with their enterprise and personal initiative, and set an example for their peers by overcoming challenges. Current Buck Fellows have led their schools’ sports teams, founded organizations at their school, and ranked high in their classes academically.

Applications for the Buck Fellows Program are available at www.buckscholars.org/fellows and are due on April 1, 2020.
