As a LUCES Scholar or Latino College Student, you have a unique opportunity to be part of Rising Stars and the first cohort of LUCES Mentoring Scholars Program. This new initiative has been sponsored by the LUCES Board of Directors.
LUCES Rising Stars will be mentored by a successful and well established professional in your career of choice. A mentor is a long live learning guide that serves you with networking, community connections, decision making, career exploration, recommendations, and support overall during your professional career journey.
Research shows that underrepresented students are less likely to attend college or continue their higher education goals due to the lack of communication from both colleges and high schools, particularly for Latino students. At the same time, the probability of a Latino student to enter an institution of higher education almost doubles if the individual has a person who is providing them with information and teaching them how to navigate institutions of higher education.
LUCES Board of Directors is excited to welcome you as part of Rising Stars and to become a member of our first cohort for LUCES Mentoring Scholars Program.
LUCES is a nonprofit organization that works to ensure bright futures for young Latinos in Wisconsin by providing several merit and need-based scholarships.
If you could not registered for this first cohort, please contact LUCES at firstname.lastname@example.org.
