About the Program
The NYU Abu Dhabi University Prep Program is designed to demystify the often daunting college admissions process.
The program will include workshops and small group sessions on a variety of topics:
- the college search process
- college admissions and application preparation
- college entrance test awareness and readiness
- essay and resume writing
Program graduates will be encouraged to act as mentors and advisors to peers within their respective high schools and share the knowledge and skills they have gained through this program.
If selected, students participate in this program under a scholarship which covers the program, program materials, and lunches on campus.
- Students must be enrolled in a high school in the UAE.
- Students must be able to commit to attending the full program; lateness and absence will not be acceptable.
- Open to young men and women of any nationality.
Preference will be given to:
- rising seniors (those finishing high school in spring 2019)
- students with limited access to college counseling within their school
- students with a strong academic record in high school
- students who can demonstrate a strong level of involvement and/or leadership within their school community or peer group
- students interested in applying to one or more universities that use the Common Application (this may include any campus of NYU)
WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER 2018.
