Xavier Scholars Program

The Xavier Scholars Program develops a student's passion in an academic field of study of their choice through individualized courses of learning and experience.  Scholars work with faculty mentors to explore new ideas, assist with research, and create a network of community members who share expertise in that field. Download the Xavier Scholars Program booklet for more information.
