Attention: given the impact of COVID-19, the BATS Scholars application deadline has been pushed back to April 1, 2020.
Please disregard any mention of the original March 15 deadline in the application documents or elsewhere.
The educators of the Bay Area Tutoring Summit seek two to three high school sophomores to join each fall’s class of BATS Scholars. The application for students in the high school class of 2022 (current sophomores) is now open.
This year's application deadline is 11:59 PM on April 1, 2020.

Commitment to Education
Candidates must be committed to high school and college success and willing to receive several hours per week of academic assistance outside of the school day. Families of BATS Scholars support them in these efforts.
Candidates must already be succeeding in their high school program and be ready to take their intellectual development to the next level.
BATS Scholars contribute to the community through their example and their civic participation.
