||Ventures Scholars Member Institution Enrichment Programs
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
- Learn what turns an applicant into an admitted student
- Become a test prep "whiz kid"
- Find your way through the financial aid/scholarship
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).
