Program Targets Motivated Minority Youth

NEW YORK - PwC is now accepting applications for its 2012 Impact program class.  The Impact program is a unique community initiative and early minority talent program designed to help cultivate the next generation of leaders.  The 2010 graduating class of Impact Program scholars has collectively been offered more than $18 million in scholarships by colleges and universities nationwide.

Students who become Impact scholars will participate in monthly workshops outside of school hours and at an off-site location. The workshops will help students:

  • Learn to navigate the college planning and application process and help them get financial aid

  • Prepare for pursuing higher education

  • Broaden awareness of their college options and help prepare them for the admissions process

  • Gain exposure to careers in the business and accounting professions

  • Connect with PwC mentors who will share their experiences  and act as a sounding board for career and academic decisions

  • Gain exposure to leadership networks


Highly motivated high school juniors (11th grade) of Black/African American descent in the New York metro area with accomplished academic backgrounds (3.2 GPA or B average), strong leadership skills, and plans to attend college after high school, are encouraged to apply.


How to Apply

Students interested in applying for the Impact program can download the application for their region at  Deadline for application is Thursday, December 9, 2010. Applicants will be reviewed, interviewed and selected by a PwC selection committee and then contacted about participation by late February.  Students selected to participate will begin in March 2011 and continue through completion of their senior year of high school (May 2012).
