A Free Visit To Oberlin
Oberlin's Multicultural Visit Program (MVP) is a selective, all-expenses-paid visit program for high-achieving high school seniors. We encourage applications from students from diverse backgrounds such as Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Hispanic/Latino/a/x, or Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. To support socioeconomic diversity, the selection committee will also consider students from families with limited financial resources, regardless of cultural or racial background, as well as those who are among the first in their families to attend college (first generation).
This is a selective program that seeks students serious about Oberlin and their education. High school seniors accepted to the program receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Oberlin to stay in residence halls, tour the campus, visit classes, attend admissions and financial aid workshops, and meet current students, professors, and staff.
Dates for the fall 2017 MVP programs are below.

AT-A-GLANCE CONFERENCE DATES AND LOCATION
DATE: March 22-25, 2018
LOCATION: Sacramento, CA
DEADLINE: October 25, 2017
Background: The annual Asian Pacific Youth Leadership Project (APYLP) conference provides a select group of 50 Asian and Pacific Islander seniors and juniors from public, private and charter high schools throughout California with a unique opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the legislative process, community leadership, and political activism. During the four-day, three-night conference, students will participate in a Mock Legislature at the State Capitol that includes the election of peer legislative leaders, lively debate of current issues through the introduction of legislation, and the lobbying of bills during committee hearings and the Senate floor session. Additionally, small group workshops facilitated by Asian Pacific legislative staff, community activists, and business leaders will assist students in developing their leadership and public speaking skills, enhance their cultural awareness and identity, and explore the richness and diversity of Asian and Pacific Islander communities in California.
Who Should Apply: Although any California junior or senior year high school student may apply, APYLP strongly encourages applications from Asian and Pacific Islander youth who have some leadership experience and especially from students who show leadership potential, but whose participation in programs such as APYLP may have been hindered in the past by economic, geographic, language, or other factors. The conference program is designed specifically for Asian and Pacific Islander youth to learn more about themselves, issues of importance to their communities, and how to empower their leadership potential through the political process, public service and community service. Participants in past conferences have been representative of the rich cultural, racial, multiracial, linguistic, and socio-economic diversity of Asian and Pacific Islander communities from urban, suburban and rural areas throughout California.
Transportation, Room & Board: There is no cost to students accepted to the high school leadership conference. Through its fundraising efforts and generous sponsorships, APYLP pays all costs for travel, lodging, meals, and conference materials for all students selected to participate in the conference. The high school program is a supervised activity with volunteer advisors assigned to each student throughout the program.

Summer Scholars participants spend two intense weeks in one of 20 exciting programs of study. We keep the classes small and personal attention from Notre Dame faculty high. The coursework is a true preview of college academics—it is both rigorous and rewarding, and students earn one college credit upon the completion of a program track. Students collaborate on coursework outside designated class times, as they would in any college setting. There is also ample time to enjoy the social facets of college life, especially those unique to Notre Dame.
