" The opportunity to give students, and people all around the Tampa Bay area for that matter, the chance to better themselves is what excites me most about the Millennium Fellowship. The Higher Opportunity Initiative will be one that changes lives for the better through unforgettable experiences for at-risk high school students. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Higher Opportunity Initiative
The Higher Opportunity Initiative will be an on-campus student organization at the University of South Florida that engages at risk (of dropping out) high school students with the university and its students in an effort to expose them to the environment of higher education while providing them with contacts and physical resources (study aids, books, scholarship opportunities) to be successful. The goals of the organization will be to 1.) create life-changing on-campus experiences for at risk high school students and 2.)to increase academic equity in the Tampa Bay area by providing experiences, resources, and opportunities to those who may not otherwise have access to them..
