UCLA's Center for Community College Partnerships (CCCP) presents the CCCP Scholars program for the 2012-2013 Academic Year. The goal of the program is to motivate, inform and prepare students to transfer from a California community college to selective Top Tier Research institutions such as UCLA.
If selected, students in the program have access to our summer and year-long academic preparatory transfer programs which guide students through the community college experience, the application and admissions process, research and pre-graduate opportunities and career exploration. The programs focus on these processes from a social justice and educational equity perspective.
CCCP Scholars are students who may be the first in their family to go to college; come from low-income backgrounds; and/or be from underserved communities.
CCCP Scholars targets students who: have recently graduated from high school and plan to enroll in a community college in the fall OR students who have been at the community college who have not yet completed a transfer curriculum at the time of application; students who show potential for transfer success; and non-traditional students who have faced challenges in their academic career.
