College Scholarship Workshop
St. Columba, Kent | 2nd Sundays through June; 1:30pm
Do you have a high school plan that will make your child an attractive candidate for some serious financial assistance?
Do you have a plan to research which colleges might be best suited to your child’s interests and abilities?
St. Columba, Kent is host to a free monthly seminar for 7th-12th graders, and their parents, on how to understand the system of college admissions. Many of the 8th grade students who have attended in the past have benefited significantly.
Most of the great scholarships, and substantial financial aid packages are awarded by many of the best colleges in the country to kids that they have known for several years. In some cases (more than it used to be) these financial awards are being made to 10th graders! Not just any 10thgraders, but 10th graders that the schools have known for some time.
- One student is attending MIT for only $256.00 per year, including transportation.
- One student is attending Rensselaer Polytechnical Institute, perhaps the foremost engineering school in America, with a credit of $70,000/yr to cover her total expenses.
This is an excellent opportunity for our 8th and 9th graders and families to start planning for college NOW! Don’t make college a last minute decision.
