Rural Minority Scholars Program
The Rural Minority Scholars Program is a five-week summer program for recent high school graduates who plan to enter college in the next academic year. The students live on the campus of The University of Alabama. They take a course (CH 101-General Chemistry with lab), attend tutorials, seminars, field trips to rural medical facilities and shadow African-American physicians from their hometowns. This program was initiated to increase the number minority students from rural Alabama who qualify for admission to medical school through the Rural Medical Scholars Program.
