Minority Access' Associate Program

The Minority Access Associate Program is offered to colleges and universities and/or departments/schools therein as well as to individuals.

The Associate Program for colleges and universities or departments/schools within colleges and universities offers a prepaid package of benefits and services at substantial discounts to support diversity and expanded research opportunities at academic institutions. Recruitment efforts, directed particularly toward talented underrepresented students, are assisted by college recruitment fairs at Minority Access' National Role Models Conferences, advertising in Minority Access' publications, and hyperlinks on Minority Access' Website. Priority in nominating Role Models to be honored at Minority Access' National Role Models Conference, student participation in Minority Access-sponsored research seminars and inclusion in Minority Access' internship program are other benefits of the package.

Colleges and universities and/or departments/schools therein have the flexibility of subscribing to one of four different Associate Packages: Premier Plus, Premier, Elite or Standard.

Standard and Elite levels offer substantial but limited benefits of the program. Premier participants are entitled to the most comprehensive list of services of the Minority Access Associate Program, including two representatives for Premier Plus (one for Premier) in the Minority Access international delegation to observe firsthand diversity in other nations' higher education systems. The Premier Associate fee covers roundtrip international travel from the U.S., all domestic flights abroad, ground transportation, transfers and baggage handling service in our host country, tours, English-speaking guides, first class hotel accommodations abroad and most meals. The itinerary with other information and travel reservation forms are available on our International Delegation page or by calling Minority Access at (301) 779-7100.

In addition, Minority Access provides an opportunity for any individual to manifest his/her support of Minority Access' efforts by becoming an Individual Minority Access Associate. This also makes an ideal gift to a friends committed to educational diversity.
