The Mark Harris Fellowship Program has established a partnership with the Future Success Program at UWM to ensure that our students have the educational access and opportunities that they need to complete high school and attend and graduate from college. Through enrollment in the Future Success Program, Mark Harris Fellows will be provided with intense academic tutoring, advising, mentoring, career exploration and study skills. They will also be ensured completion of college prep coursework, registration and completion of the ACT exam, and timely submission of college financial aid and admission applications and scholarship forms.
Students will also be given opportunities to participate in life skills and career exploration workshops, a summer school program with curriculum centered around Math, Science, English and STEM electives, campus visits, social outings and an all expenses paid spring break trip to visit college campuses each year.
