Young Scholars Program Overview

Eligibility  |  Placement Schools  |  How to Apply  |  FAQ

The Young Scholars Program (YSP) of New Jersey SEEDS reaches children in 5th and 6th grades and strives to nurture their love of learning, critical thinking skills, self-confidence, respect for others and sense of responsibility toward the immediate and larger communities.

Three components comprise the 14-month enrichment cycle of the Young Scholars Program: a five-week summer session, classes each Saturday during the academic year, and a second five-week summer session. Upon completion, each child will be placed in an academically challenging selective day or boarding school with substantial financial aid packages.

New Jersey SEEDS is grateful to Jockey Hollow Foundation, PNC Foundation, Rivendell Foundation and Victoria Foundation for providing support for the Young Scholars Program in FY13.
