MYNT Education is committed to helping students from all socioeconomic backgrounds access higher education through the Community Scholars Program (CSP).
We offer individualized programs for students to optimize their academics. MYNT creates plans that fuel academic and extracurricular success. MYNT addresses students' personal interests to create a blueprint for college admission.
At no cost to families, selected Scholars will work closely with a MYNT counselor who will help the student navigate all aspects of the college application process. Scholars will meet with a counselor twice a month and should have transportation to the MYNT office in Pasadena (305 South Hudson Ave, Suite 202, Pasadena CA 91101).
Scholars will apply to the California State University, University of California, and 3 private schools. MYNT Education will help offset some of the cost of scholars' application fees.
Who should apply?
The Community Scholars Program is selective and open to juniors at any Southern California public high school that will graduate as part of the Class of 2021.
MYNT Education seeks motivated and academically strong students that are enrolled in at least one junior-year AP class and have a weighted GPA of at least 3.8. Students who demonstrate a commitment to community service and leadership will make more competitive candidates.
Applicants should be the first in their family to attend college and be eligible for free or reduced lunch.
Application Deadline & Process
Part I of the application is due July 1, 2020, which includes a general application (link below).
MYNT Education will follow up with selected candidates who will submit Part II of the application which includes several short essays. Students in the final round will also be asked to submit proof of parent income.
Selected scholars will be notified in early summer and will begin meeting with a MYNT counselor in August 2019.
