President's Emerging Global Scholars


The President’s Emerging Global Scholars (PEGS) grooms academic achievers for continued success. Open to first-time, full-time freshman of any major, this exceptional program targets high schoolers with at least a 3.5 GPA and either a 1200 SAT or 25 ACT score. 

Limited to 50 selected students, PEGS participants gain a definitive leg up during their college experience. 

PEGS fosters a strong first-year community among its participants who attend classes together, study together, and develop strong academic and social ties.  Students benefit from:

·      International travel during first year

·      Individualized guidance from a one-on-one mentor

·      A supportive social network

·      Scholarship preparation, pre-professional school, or undergraduate research application assistance
