CHELSEA/REVERE – As a gift to the community in honor of its bicentennial last year, the hospital announced students in the program in the high school graduating class of 2012 would be designated as MGH Bicentennial Scholars. These scholars, including students from Chelsea and Revere, will receive comprehensive support to gain admission to, succeed in, and graduate from college.
For more than 20 years, Mass General has provided paid internships to area high school students who are interested in health and science careers.
The Bicentennial Scholar program includes SAT prep, college tours, parental support, mentoring, connections to an array of supportive services, coaching, financial aid counseling, jobs during the school year and summers and scholarships of up to $5,000 per year for four years.
As part of the post-secondary support offered, students will also have the opportunity to work with a college coach to ensure they are equipped with the necessary tools to be successful throughout their years in college.
