The Role of the Ventures Scholars Consortium

The Ventures Scholars Program brings together undergraduate institutions, graduate schools, professional schools, professional associations, and organizations and provides a platform that enables the institutions and associations to offer information and opportunities to high achieving underepresented and first-generation college-going students.

Ventures Scholars Program consortium members can work together in a variety of ways:

  • Undergraduate institutions, graduate schools, and professional schools can utilize the Ventures Scholars Program to improve their recruitment and retention efforts.

  • Undergraduate institutions, graduate schools, and professional schools that share the same campus can work with the Ventures Scholars Program to increase the number of underrepresented and first- generation college-going students attending the campus at the undergraduate level and continuing to the graduate/professional school level.

  • Graduate schools, professional schools, professional associations, and organizations can begin communicating with students as early as high school to help them better understand career requirements and expectations.


  • Professional associations and organizations that develop programs with undergraduate institutions, graduate schools and professional schools can utilize the Ventures Scholars Program to track high achieving historically underrepresented students and first-generation college-going students at the high school and undergraduate levels.

"You provide contact information on talented students of color nationwide. It's extremely helpful in areas that we may not physically be able to travel to; but we can still get information about our school into the hands of these students."
