I wanted to announce that the application for the 2014 College Prep Scholarship for high school juniors will open next week. This program addresses a problem that has recently received attention in higher education news across the country: that only 34% of academically qualified, low-income students attend leading colleges. We appreciate your past recommendation of Merary Cruz, and hope that you'll refer more of your students to this program.
How will the College Prep Scholarship help your students?
Selection as a College Prep Scholar is a distinction that signifies academic success and leadership despite having faced financial challenges. College Prep Scholarship awards give high-achieving, low-income juniors the tools they need to prepare successful applications to top colleges, and help them understand that the generous financial aid at these colleges makes attending affordable–if not free. The awards include full scholarships to college summer programs, invitations to our National College Admissions conferences, and more.
Who is qualified for the College Prep Scholarship?
College Prep Scholars are often first in their class, from households earning less than $60,000 per year for a family of four, and of the first generation in their families to attend college. Last year, we provided more than 3,000 College Prep Scholars with resources to help them achieve their college dreams. Your students could be next.
What can you do now?
Please consider juniors you know who are qualified for this opportunity and refer them to us through our short online form. We'll contact them with more information, including application instructions and deadlines. You can also distribute our outreach materials, including the flyer copied below.
The application is completely free and will be available on our website next week. It is due on March 26, 2014, so we hope you'll spread the word soon. Thank you very much.
