Pre-Graduate Knights

Pre-Graduate School Knights was developed to provide guidance and support promising first generation, low income, or students underrepresented in graduate education who are interested in pursuing graduate school but do not fit the criteria of the RAMP or McNair Programs. 

Students who choose to become part of this program do not receive financial compensation for their participation, but can access online resources, meet with AAP staff members, and take part in activities designed by AAP. 

Interested students can click the button to the left to fill out the interest form or email aap@ucf.edu to meet with an AAP staff member to discuss their fit for the program.
