Los Angeles City College (LACC) is currently recruiting new students for their Ralph Bunche Scholars program (RBScholars). The Scholars program has grown from 20 to more than 220 students  in the last several years. Designed to help students reach their goal of transferring to a four-year university, the program offers participating students a rigorous curriculum designed to prepare them for top-tier universities and colleges;  the opportunity to participate in Honors Research Conferences; a UCLA Library card and access to UCLA libraries; faculty mentoring, meetings and outings.


To qualify for the RBScholars program, students need a 3.0 GPA and be eligible for English 101. All students who meet those criteria are encouraged to apply. To certify in the program, students also complete a research essay and finish 30 hours of community service.


“We are very proud of all of our Ralph Bunche Scholars students,” said Nadia Elahi, Co-Director, Ralph Bunche Scholars Program. “Our scholars successfully transfer to universities including UCLA, UC Berkeley, USC, Cal States and MIT among others.”
