Again I have the wonderful opportunity to produce a film for the Rutgers Futures Scholars Program. The program selects an elite group of 200 students from Piscataway, Newark, New Brunswick, and Camden (all places where Rutgers has campuses) and offers them a full scholarship to Rutgers University. The only catch is the students must go through rigorous academic training and mentorship programs for four years prior to applying to Rutgers. The first cohort of Rutgers Future Scholars will be applying to Rutgers next fall.
The film is about this year’s Rutgers Future Scholars Welcome Session. The program has inducted its 4th cohort of students, totaling 800 students from around New Jersey.
