Initiative 4 - Hostos Mentoring and Supporting Students Accepted in 2 + 2 Opportunities Program

Hostos Mentoring and Supporting Students Accepted in 2 + 2 Opportunities Program is designed to support students by means of mentoring and scholarship support in order to establish an Hostos pipeline of talented transfer students to competitive institutions. Hostos will work on creating 2 + 2 + 2 transfer opportunities by building relationships with colleagues at the transfer institution, working on establishing programs, mentoring and selecting students, and ultimately matching one by one grant opportunities offered by the receiving institution, based on availability of funding from the President’s Initiatives each given year.  This is an opportunity to support students’ scholarships from prestigious institutions with support from Hostos for a comparable number of students who meet same criteria, as a way to support choice and opportunities for our students. We would also consider hosting a graduation celebration or recognition ceremony for each milestone with faculty/staff advisors – one when they complete at Hostos, one at Bachelor’s level, etc.
