At All-In, we help scholars handle the financial aspects of college, from negotiating significant tuition discount packages with our partner universities to finding additional scholarships and providing funding of our own. But that’s just a start.
Through the work of our professional advisors and fellow scholars who serve as peer mentors, All- In Milwaukee ensures that each scholar receives personal guidance during the transition from high school to the complex and often unfamiliar world of higher education. From there, All-In advisors consistently support their social and emotional needs, connect them to a broader community of fellow scholars and cultivate their careers.
Here’s a road map of their journey:
All-In Milwaukee works with high school counselors and partner organizations to identify high-potential students who fit the application criteria.
The Pathway Partners nominate eligible high school seniors and All-In Milwaukee invites the student to apply for the program when the application opens in November.
New All-In Milwaukee scholars attend an orientation session, where they are provided a syllabus that maps out the next four years and sets expectations.
New scholars, along with continuing All-In Milwaukee scholars, attend summer socials and donor receptions to better connect with each other and the members of Milwaukee’s community who help fund their education.
In August, new scholars and continuing scholars gather for the Summer Institute, where they attend presentations on social and emotional wellness, mental health and professional development.
This preparation is critical for all scholars, but especially so for first-generation students.
All scholars attend the Winter Institute in January, with more information about social and emotional well-being, mental health and professional development.
Graduating seniors attend a retreat, where they learn more about life and professional skills such as how to read and respond to a job offer letter, how to ask for a raise and how to resolve workplace conflicts.
Graduating seniors attend a graduation celebrations.
Scholars participate in intentional experiences during the summer including study abroad programs, research opportunities, and summer classes to continue their college studies and stay on track to graduate.
