Young Scholars Program
It was a different kind of summer camp for high school students who visited Fisher during the Samuel DuBois Cook Summer Academy. The program, part of The Ohio State University Office of Diversity and Inclusion Young Scholars Program, focuses on collegiate planning and career exploration.

Founded in 1988, the Young Scholars Program supports and serves academically gifted children who come from low income households and would be the first in their families to attend college.

In July, nine Young Scholars attended a career exploration program at Fisher and interacted with faculty, staff, undergraduate students, and professionals in accounting and human resources. Students also visited the headquarters of Bath & Body Works, a division of Columbus-based Limited Brands.

“It is particularly important for first-generation college students to visualize themselves as successful college students and then business professionals. The people and activities the Young Scholars were exposed to allowed them to do just that.”
