The Scholar-athletes with Academic Goals (SWAG) Initiative is a pipeline program for scholar-athletes in junior high, high school, and college students interested in science and medicine. Our consortium organizes summits and symposiums to build this network, funnel our members to various programs, and create academic opportunities for them.
Participation in athletics and academics is an exciting dynamic. It requires tenacity, determination, and commitment to excellence. Student-athletes develop character traits of self-confidence, dedication to tasks, resilience, and time management skills, which are also important for success in science, technology, engineering, and math.
We are always looking to connect with schools and programs that share our vision. If you have any questions and want to join our meetings and listserv, please feel free to contact us at SWAG@mssm.edu.
We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
