Become a Pathways to College Associate Scholar

DSC_2423Pathways to College has two types of programs for motivated students who are striving to do well in high school and go on to college. One is for those who attend a participating high school, where Scholars are able to attend weekly sessions on site.  But if you don’t attend a Pathways to College high school, you can still join the Pathways family by applying to become an Associate Scholar! Just by becoming an Associate Scholar applicant, you will receive our guidebook, Pathways to College: An Explorer’s Guide, described below.


Besides the guidebook, following your acceptance as an Associate Scholar you will from time to time also receive other useful information and materials on preparing for college. You’ll be sent periodic newsletters with information on a variety of topics, such as finding opportunities for summer programs, tips for keeping on the college track, and news about other Pathways to College Scholars and Associate Scholars.  We will also place you in contact with our Partner Colleges (names listed below) who may send information on their undergraduate and pre-college programs.

And if you have specific questions, you can contact us at and we will try our best to help you access the information you need. To apply to become a Pathways to College Associate Scholar, download and print the application below, complete it, and mail it to:Pathways to College, Programs Office, P.O. Box 2105, Middletown, NY 10940. Be sure to fill out ALL the requested information.
