Got a middle-schooler? Get a college scholarship!

We’ve reported before on the College-Bound scholarship program – pitched in a huge event at Denny Middle School at the start of this school year — now Richard Brown at Technology Access Foundation e-mailed to suggest we share information on a citywide event this Saturday where families can go to get information and sign up:

The Seattle Public Schools, College Success Foundation, Seattle University, and Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board (HECB) will host “Seattle is College Bound”, a free event for eligible Seattle Public Schools 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students to sign up for the College Bound Scholarship, this Sat., June 6 from 9:00 a.m. – 11 a.m. at Seattle University’s Campion Ballroom, 901 12th Avenue [map].

    Just a note that on the second website listed the links don’t seem to be working. The first one – gives a little more info, such as eligibility criteria.

    Tracy, do they need to be in 7th grade now or entering 7th grade in the fall?

    If you have a true 9th grader who was in 8th grade last year (not held back) they are still eligible too but their deadline is June 30th so get them signed up! It’s such an easy form to fill out that could mean access to college for students who might not have otherwise been able to pay!

Sorry, comment time is over.
