9th Annual Minority Scholarship Workshop
Highland Park High School-South Gym
Lack of access to higher education among underrepresented populations is a growing concern in the United States. Challenges to access can take a variety of forms. The Minority Scholarship workshop is designed to better prepare low socio-economic and minority students to compete for collegiate scholarships by educating underrepresented students about the steps necessary to increase their chances of accessing a higher education. The Minority Scholarship Workshop is aimed at educating underrepresented student populations and their parents about how to maximize their scholarship opportunities and increase their potential to access a higher education.

• How to fill out the FAFSA (Free Application For Federal Student Aid)

• ACT, SAT, The scores MATTER!!!
This workshop is a 4-hour interactive workshop with presentations, and Q & A. The workshop has a component for students, and another for parents. Handouts, college notebook, and scholarship information is provided as part of the workshop.
