Whitworth University invites high school juniors and seniors to share their diverse backgrounds and unique experiences at our overnight Multicultural Visit Program (MVP). This is an excellent opportunity to explore Whitworth and the Spokane community. If you are seeking an education of mind and heart in a welcoming community that lifts up academic excellence, the integration of faith and learning, and diversity and inclusion, we invite you to apply.
All lodging and meals for this event are complimentary. Bus transportation will be provided for students coming from Seattle/Tacoma and travel grants are available for students traveling from outside Spokane or the Seattle/Tacoma area.
Who can apply? This program is open to high school juniors and seniors. We specifically encourage students of underrepresented racial and ethnic populations and first generation college students to apply.

Where is Whitworth University and how do I get there? Whitworth University is located 15 minutes north of downtown Spokane, Wash.
