The application process for new Fellows is now open. BRYC has openings for an entire new freshmen class as well as for next year’s 10th, 11th, and 12th grade cohorts. So if you know of a high-achieving (3.3 GPA), under-resourced student please send them to our online application.
BRYC is looking for enthusiastic community members who are willing to tutor our Fellows. We strive to have tutors in the BRYC House Monday-Thursday from 3:30-7:30pm. Most tutors volunteer 1-2 hours per week. BRYC makes it easy to volunteer and we remain flexible to your schedule.
For more information please download our BRYC Tutor Flyer or go straight to our online registration page.

It’s a picture of a BRYC Sophomore Fellow, Jasmine, confidently asking Barack Obama the very first questions of his town hall meeting at McKinley High School in South Baton Rouge this morning. She asked, with tremendous poise, what he will do after his second term ends, and also, if he would give her grandmother a hug. He said he would give her grandmother a hug because Jasmine asked the question so well.
