 Scholarships Going to Waste

Even if you do not have a college-aged child at home, please share this with someone who does, pass this scholarship information on to anyone and everyone that comes to mind.
Though there are a number of companies and organizations that have donated monies for scholarships use to African Americans, a great deal of the money is being returned because of a lack of interest.
No one is going to knock on our doors and ask if we can use a scholarship. Take the initiative to get your children involved. There is no need for money to be returned to donating companies because wefail to apply for it. please pass this information on to family members, nieces, nephews, friends with children etc.
We must get the word out that money is available. If you are a college student or getting ready to become one , you probably already know how useful additional money can be. Our youth really could use these scholarships.

It only takes one person to change your life - you!
 Are you a Black Male college bound senior in high school and would like to
attend a college out of state for FREE? Several Black Colleges are looking for future black male teachers and will send them to universities/colleges for 4 years……FREE!

The "Call Me MISTER" program is an effort to address the critical shortage of African American male teachers particularly among South Carolina’s lowest performing public schools. Program participants are selected from among under-served, socio-economically disadvantaged and educationally at-risk communities. The program is a collaboration between Clemson University and four historically black colleges in South Carolina: Benedict College, Claflin University, Morris College and South Carolina State University.

The project provides: 

A)  Tuition for admitted students pursuing approved programs of study at participating colleges. 
B)  An academic support system to help assure their success.
C)  A cohort system for social and cultural support.

**Getting into Harvard University -- Harvard Financial Aid Initiative**

University recently announced that from now on, undergraduate students from low-income families will pay no tuition. In making the announcement, Harvard's president Lawrence H. Summers said: 

"When only 10 percent of the students in Elite higher education come from families in lower half of the income distribution, we are not doing enough. We are not doing enough in bringing elite higher education to the lower half of the income distribution. Our doors have long been open to talented students regardless of financial need but many students simply do not know or believe this. We are determined to change both the perception and the reality."

Beginning in 2006, parents in families with yearly incomes of less than $60,000 will no longer be expected to contribute to the cost of attending Harvard for their children including room and board. In addition, Harvard will reduce the contributions expected of families with yearly incomes between $60,000 and $80,000.

There is no separate application process for the HFAI. Interested students, including transfers and international students, should instead apply to Harvard through the regular application process by the established deadlines, filling out all applicable financial aid forms. While there is an application fee, waivers are easily available upon request. Harvard College considers students for admission without regard to their ability to pay, guaranteeing to meet the full financial need of every student who qualifies for aid. Accepted students who qualify under the new initiative will therefore automatically benefit should they choose to attend Harvard. Further information on applying to Harvard College can be found at the admissions office website.

Should you have any questions about the Harvard Financial Aid Initiative, ten student coordinators are available to assist potential applicants during the academic year. They are prepared to describe and explain not only basic financial aid policy and practice, but also to discuss more general aspects of student life at Harvard College. 

Office hours are maintained throughout the academic year, beginning in late September and ending in late May. 

The telephone number is (617) 384-8213 or (617) 495-1581.
