College Process – Resources

This page is intended for Scholars and their families to refer to when they need a resource while going through the college research, application, funding, and decision-making process. If there is something you don’t see below and would like, please let us know.

We are planning our future events and are gradually adding them to the shared program calendar. Please bookmark the url for future use, and we will give you reminders in our newsletters as events are coming up!
