Project: ACTT is an opportunity for highly motivated students from diverse ethnic backgrounds to experience Queens. Students will participate in the social, educational and residential aspects of the Queens community with the opportunity to meet current students, faculty, staff and administration. The event occurs annually during the spring homecoming weekend. Students will be allowed to participate in all campus activities free of charge.

Although anyone can participate in Project: ACTT, we target high school juniors from underserved communities such as American Indians, African-American, Hispanic/Latinos, and Asian/Pacific Islanders. We also welcome prospective first-generation college students and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. Students must be highly motivated, enrolled in some honors and advanced placement courses with a minimum of a 3.5 cumulative weighted GPA. Students must be recommended by their high school counselors. Once nominated, students must complete an application for Diverse Scholars Weekend online.
