To apply for the scholarship program, stu- dents must be eligible for the Pell Grant and have a B grade point average or better. The selected high school students will be paired with men- tors who advise and help prepare them for success at the Univer- sity of Delaware where they will graduate in four years without any debt for tuition, fees, or room and board.
