The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation awarded $1.99 million to CSU and $1.49 million to Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) to create a scholars program connecting high-achieving Tri-C students with CSU’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Honors College. The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Continuing Scholars Program forges a new partnership between CSU and Tri-C that aims to be a national model for honors student transfers between two-year and four-year schools.
Through full-tuition scholarships and stipends, summer research workshops, training opportunities, peer mentoring and academic advisors, the program will help Tri-C students make a seamless transition to CSU’s Mandel Honors College in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree.
The first group of Mandel Continuing Scholars will transition to CSU this fall. Transfer students will enter CSU as juniors after earning an associate degree at Tri-C. Once at CSU, they will be on course to graduate within two years.
