ESS Scholars

Engineering Student Success Scholars

The ESS Scholars program started in August 2018 to support underrepresented minorities in engineering and computer science. Specifically, it was designed to help African-American, Hispanic-American and Native American students. This program uses a cohort model approach, targeting incoming freshman, transfer students, sophomores and technology students. 

This program is designed to help underrepresented students succeed in college. Students receive scholarships as well as internal and external financial resources. This program works with students entering Cleveland State all the way through graduation, incorporating academic enrichment and professional development programming each semester.

  • Academic advising tailored to students’ individual needs
  • Comprehensive coaching
  • Tutoring
