Minorities can apply for program at BYU

American minority high school students are invited to apply for BYU's Discovery program. Applications are due by Feb. 1, 1994, but students are encouraged to apply now because demand is so high.

The program provides assistance, direction, enrichment and support for minority students in academics, leadership, personal development and orientation to college life.Discovery students live in campus dormitories and apartments, participate in social activities and take college-level courses taught by BYU instructors.

The program is divided into two parts. The Achieve program is for students just graduated from high school who have been accepted to BYU for fall semester. In addition to taking college courses during the summer, Achieve participants will receive help applying for financial aid, scheduling classes, arranging housing and obtaining academic advisement.

For those who have just completed their junior year in high school, the Challenge program offers modules in pre-engineering, communications, education and pre-law.

The students, who receive letter grades in courses they take during their time on the campus, also compete for scholarships to BYU based on their academic performance in the program.

Applications can be obtained by writing to Multicultural Financial Aid, BYU, 353 ELWC, P.O. Box 27908, Provo, Utah, 84602.
