Kicking off our newest initiative

SES

Next week, the Alabama Humanities Foundation will launch its newest program initiative, SUPER Emerging Scholars (SES). SES is a residential, pre-college, research and writing institute for rising high-school juniors and seniors that will be held on the campus of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Participants were recruited from Greene and Jefferson counties, as well as Birmingham City school systems. Fifteen students were selected from 30 applications to participate in the inaugural class of SUPER Emerging Scholars, and the class consists of students from the following high schools: Fairfield, Ramsay, Midfield, Greene County and Huffman.
