A Free Visit To Oberlin

Oberlin's Multicultural Visit Program (MVP) is a selective, all-expenses-paid visit program for high-achieving high school seniors. We encourage applications from students from diverse backgrounds such as Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Hispanic/Latino(a), or Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. To support socioeconomic diversity, the selection committee will also consider students from families with limited financial resources, regardless of cultural or racial background, as well as those who are among the first in their families to attend college (first generation). 

This is a selective program that seeks students serious about Oberlin and their education. High school seniors accepted to the program receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Oberlin to stay in residence halls, tour the campus, visit classes, attend admissions and financial aid workshops, and meet current students, professors, and staff.
