Rising Scholars Program

Rising Scholars Logo



The Rising Scholars program provides support for formerly incarcerated students at San Diego Miramar College. We also have a partnership with the Miramar Naval Consolidated Brig, one of only three military prisons in the United States, located at the nearby Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.

We are part of the statewide Rising Scholars Network

A Rising Scholar is any current or prospective student who has been incarcerated, has had interactions with the carceral system, and/or has loved ones who have been affected by the carceral system.
