Hi everyone, We hope you and your loved ones are well. We will do our best to keep you posted with news from our office, please check the blog at least once a week. Ana is in the process of updating the information - somehow she deleted some old posts and locked us out of the old blog!
Thank you for your patience! We are here to support you - please reach out to us. See you in cyberspace! Maura, Inti, Ana A little virtual learning humor:
One of the most important factors is
in deciding if a college is right for you is whether or not you can picture
yourself as a member of campus and for many students this means a campus visit.
If the college isn’t nearby, however, being able to make the visit might
not be possible due to financial limitations. The good news is that a
number of institutions offer free fly-in programs, travel assistance
scholarships, overnight programs, and diversity programming that comes at
little or no cost to students accepted to their programs.
Check out this linkfor an updated list of these fly-in,
diversity, and other programs that are great opportunities for multicultural
If you are a high school senior planning to enroll in a 4-or 5-year college program, or you are a college freshman or sophomore enrolled in a 4-or 5-year college program, who is looking for career experience in a dynamic environment, apply to the CIA's Undergraduate Scholar Program and contribute to the work of the nation before you graduate.
We believe that the opportunity for college exists for students who do not have a family history of higher education. I’m First! is an online community providing first-generation college students—and those who advise them—with inspiration, information, and support on the road to and through college.
