Multicultural Fellows

Overview:

The Multicultural Fellowship program is an initiative intended to recruit and retain historically underrepresented student populations who have superior academic achievements and financial needs. Through the fellowship, students receive scholarships/grants, students are mentored and encouraged to pursue campus leadership opportunities and establish networks that will help them develop skills for beyond their collegiate careers.

Student Expectations:

As a Multicultural Fellows scholar, students are expected to maintain the following:

  • All Multicultural Fellows are required to reside in on-campus housing. This scholarship is intended to increase on-campus diversity via housing accommodations. If students desire to live off-campus or hold positions that cover housing costs (i.e. becoming a resident assistant), they will not be able to maintain the multicultural fellowship.
  • All Multicultural Fellows must maintain good academic standing. According to the Geneseo’s academic policies, good academic standing is defined as a 2.3 GPA or higher with a minimum of 11 credits each semester (8 credits first semester).
  • All Multicultural Fellows are expected to check-in with the Director of Multicultural Affairs at least twice a semester. Check-ins can be scheduled virtually or in-person, depending on what is established between the director and scholar.
  • All Multicultural Fellows are required to serve as ambassadors through the Admissions Office (200 Doty Hall) to share their experiences as Geneseo scholars while establishing relationships with incoming students.
  • All Multicultural Students are expected to mentor and develop relationships with one another in an effort to cultivate community and academic success.
  • All Multicultural Fellows are expected to attend GOLD Leadership Workshops.
