"Fort Valley State University has the unique ability to both challenge and nurture talented students by pushing them past their preconceived boundaries,"
The Searchlight Scholars Program's name reflects its purpose- to discover and shine a light on promising students who might otherwise be overlooked. It also hearkens to the FVSU's historic moniker as "the light in the valley," a reference to its role in making the illuminating light of knowledge accessible to everyone, regardless of race or economic circumstance.
"National College Resources Foundation is on a mission to close the gap in achievement, workforce, and economic disparities,"

NCRF helps students of color and those from low income communities overcome barriers to entering college. NCRF's approach is to provide specialized attention which meets the unique needs of each student involved in its programs, and work with them to develop a map to meet their individual goals. In particular, FSVU's Searchlight Scholars Program will connect students from NCRF's Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts + Agriculture + Aviation + Aerospace, and Mathematics (STEAM) program with opportunities to enter related majors in the hard sciences at FVSU.
