Diverse Scholars Weekend

Diverse Scholars Weekend

Project: Academic Champions of Today & Tomorrow (ACTT)


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.

How to participate:
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.

High School Juniors:
Please see your high school guidance counselor for a recommendation form. Applications are due January 15.

Contact your Queens admissions counselor or download a nomination form to recommend students. Students must be nominated before they can apply to Project: ACTT.

Project: ACTT is a partnership between the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Office of Diversity & Inclusion at Queens University of Charlotte.

The Application Process for Project ACTT 2013 is Closed
