President's Emerging Scholars

President's Emerging Scholars (PES) is a merit-based scholarship and student success program that supports underserved students in their pursuit of a bachelor's degree at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Participants are selected based on holistic review conducted by the Office of Admissions, and PES students demonstrate achievement in a number of ways, including strong academics, extracurricular excellence, and significant community engagement.

Our Scholars are accomplished, involved, and resilient. PES students are also diverse: Many are the first in their family to attend college, Pell Grant recipients, and students of color.
