What Does It Take To Have a Positive Impact on Minority Students' College Retention?
Newman, Philip R.; Newman, Barbara M.
Adolescence, v34 n135 p483-92 Fall 1999
Describes the Young Scholars Program (YSP), which seeks to expand the pool of underrepresented minority youth who aspire to attend college, and to help them meet entrance requirements and successfully obtain a college degree. Results suggest that the YSP, as well as students' positive reputation among family members, peers, and teachers, produced strong motivation, ability and determination to succeed. (Author/MKA)
