The Underground Scholars creates a pathway for formerly incarcerated and system impacted individuals into higher education. We are building a prison-to-school pipeline through recruitment, retention, and advocacy. Our continued success directly challenges the stigmas associated with our population.



We're moving to a new space!

As of Monday, July 30th, BUS will be located at 2400C Bancroft Way.
