Seeking Bronx Scholars Opportunity Program (BSOP) Applicants for 2021-2022!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bronx, NY, June 15th, 2021 – We are The Admissions Angle, an independent college consultant group located in the South Bronx, and we want to help in the mission of equity in higher education. We spend hours creating free college admissions content on our blog and social media platforms, as well as mentor students directly in their daunting college admissions journeys, but we also love to get more directly involved in our community.
To that end, we are now accepting applications for our Bronx Scholars Opportunity Program (BSOP), which aims to help motivated high school students maximize their education potential, both in regards to admissions and merit-based financial aid, through one-on-one expert guidance.
Applicants must meet four basic criteria to be considered.
- Must be a rising senior with plans to graduate high school in the Spring/Summer of 2022.
- Scholars should be low-income, first-generation college applicants.
- Must live in one of NYC’s five boroughs.
- Willing to participate in our Pay-It-Forward program the following summer (Summer 2022)
Beyond that, all we ask for is big dreams and a great attitude!

- A Customized College Roadmap (CCR) with a personalized Admissions Angle strategy and timeline of necessary steps
- 10 one-on-one Zoom meetings with access to project management software to keep mentors, students, and parents on the same page
- College list featuring dream, reach, and safety schools based on student’s achievements with counseling on suggested majors

Our Pay-It-Forward Initiative
Recipients of the BSOP Award automatically commit to serving as a junior mentor for the summer immediately following their senior year as part of our pay-it-forward initiative. The length of service will amount to about a one-week virtual training session in addition to twenty hours of mentoring younger students.
The Pay-It-Forward initiative is part of our effort to scale our impact in the NYC metro area. With The Admissions Angle’s proven strategies and a bit of help from the local community, we believe that we can help students reach and even surpass their college dreams for a better, brighter future.
This summer we have mentors like Matthew from Queens, who will be attending Cornell University this Fall, and Violet, who will be attending the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.
To apply for the BSOP Award, please fill out this form. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Recipients will be notified by phone or email.
