New Scholarship to Support Undergraduate Students from Underrepresented Groups

University College announces the establishment of the Our Time has Come Scholarship (OTHC) to support undergraduate students from underrepresented groups. The initial funding was generated from an Orange Academy course, Voices Matters: Why you Need to Talk about Race taught by Jeffrey Mangram and Chandice Haste-Jackson.

“We are excited to provide additional financial support to our part-time students attending Syracuse University,” says Dean Michael Frasciello. “The University College Our Time Has Come scholarship extends the OTCH’s extraordinary program of leadership development and networking opportunities to our online undergraduate students.”

The scholarship will be used each year to provide financial assistance to undergraduate students enrolled at University College.

“I am thrilled to count University College among several schools and colleges at SU with OTHC scholarships, especially during this critical time,” says Rachel Vassel, associate vice president of multicultural advancement.  “OTHC has supported underrepresented students at the university for over 30 years and we are looking forward to serving many talented UC students in the future.”
