Early College Prep for Students
College education is attainable and affordable
“Don't let the money stop you. Just work hard and be passionate about learning.”
It is quite surprising for parents to discover that there are many scholarships and financial aid available for students from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds. With financial aid, college students can pay less than $1,000 per quarter. Knowing this fact alone will dramatically impact their decision to send their kids to college.
To get to college, students need to work hard and take their middle and high school studies seriously
One of the main goals of the outreach is to encourage middle school students' interest in pursuing a career in a STEM-related field. Today, college education is a necessity for a STEM career. Hence, a key component of the project is to impress upon the students to study hard towards a college education.
