Providing students with the foundational support and financial assistance necessary to enroll in and graduate from college
The Mark Harris Fellowship Program provides guidance and support to students from low-income families and students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. Participants in the Mark Harris Fellowship Program receive fundamental support to prepare them for college admission and completion. The program provides opportunities and resources to help students flourish throughout high school, and ultimately succeed in their pursuit of higher education, through mentoring, financial assistance, and a partnership with the Future Success Program at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.
Participants in the Mark Harris Harris Fellowship Program are selected at the end of their freshmen year of high school from a pool of applicants at Shorewood High School after being nominated by their guidance counselor, submitting an application and essay, and participating in an interview process.
Mark Harris Fellows participate in the program throughout their sophomore, junior, and senior years in high school. Participation in the program includes monthly mentor lunch meetings, weekly email or text check-ins with mentors as well as full participation in the Future Success Program at UW-Milwaukee, all with the goal of ensuring that students receive the resources and academic support services necessary for college admission and completion.
Upon completion of the program, participants receive a partial scholarship funded by the Mark Harris Fellowship Program, renewable for up to four years of full-time enrollment at an institution of higher education. Additionally, mentors work directly with students to assist with completion of college applications, as well as applications for additional scholarships, grants, and financial aid opportunities. Our relationship and support will continue long after high school.
