College Horizons
College Horizons is a five-day "crash course" in preparing for college. Expert college counselors, teamed up with admission officers, will help you:

  • Select colleges suitable for you
  • Complete winning applications and write memorable essays
  • Learn what turns an applicant into an admitted student
  • Become a test prep "whiz kid"
  • Find your way through the financial aid/scholarship jungle

Students will learn about a broad variety of colleges and universities and establish personal relationships with admission representatives and college counselors that will continue long after the program is over. Participants will be limited to 56 at each site and will be Native American (enrolled members only), Native Alaskan or Native Hawaiian current sophomores and juniors from throughout the U.S. Students will be selected by application: a minimum GPA of 3.0 is required. First round, priority receipt deadline is February 10. Second round receipt deadline is March 1. Applications will be accepted on a space-available basis to June 1 (after March 1, please contact us to see which sites may still have spaces).
