High school students and their families are invited to a scholarship fair sponsored by the Infinite Scholars Program and The Leadership Team USA on Oct. 17 and 18, at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, 6400 Woodrow Road, Lithonia.
The free event will hosts representatives from more than 40 colleges and universities who will discuss scholarship opportunities at their schools. The representatives will be available from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 8 p.m. during the fair.
“This is a great opportunity for college-bound high school students and their parents to meet with college representatives about scholarship opportunities,” said Thomas Ousley, founder of Infinite Scholars.
Additionally, students who are interested in entering the workforce before attending college will have the opportunity to learn about trade and skilled workforce apprenticeships at the fair.
“We are opening doors for our youth and giving them options because all students should have hope after high school,” said Courtney Dillard, founder and CEO of The Leadership Team USA.
In the past, many students have received scholarship and admission offers on the spot. A wide variety of schools participate—from large private and public universities to small, liberal-arts colleges. Students should be prepared to interview with college representatives on site. Students should bring multiple copies of their unofficial high school transcript, test scores (ACT/SAT), two letters of recommendation, student resume, and an essay about why they want to attend college.
District superintendents, principals, counselors, teachers, parents and students are invited to attend a community parent association breakfast on Oct. 6, 9 to 11 a.m., at the AEI Startup Factory, 7310 Stonecrest Concourse, Stonecrest.
