New York Public Library – Junior Scholars Program

Junior Scholars Program Season (2015-2016)

October 24, 2015-May 14, 2016

New York Public Library are now accepting applications for our upcoming Junior Scholars Program season! Youth ages 11-18 will be selected to participate in the 13th year of this uniquely designed pre-college black studies program at the Schomburg Center.  The Saturday sessions run from 10 am to 3 pm and are designed with an inquiry-based and project-based approach to teaching about black American history and the global black experience.

Junior Scholars attend weekly college-style lectures and presentations, engage in dialogue with adult scholars, participate in guided peer group discussions and activities, generate individual research projects and portfolios, and create collaborative media and arts projects that grow from their intensive study based on the Schomburg’s vast collections, exhibitions, and educational resources.

The Junior Scholars program begins on October 24, 2015 and culminates on May 14, 2016 with the annual Youth Summit.
