A Pre-College Workshop For Native American Students

Sponsored by AIGC (American Indian Graduate Center, Inc.),
Co-sponsored by Whitman College, Washington University, and 26 of the nation's finest colleges

June 14 -18, 2003 at Whitman College, Walla Walla, WA
June 28 - July 2, 2003 at Washington University, St. Louis, MO

College Horizons is a five-day "crash course" in preparing for college. Expert college counselors, teamed up with admission officers from 21 colleges 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 establish personal relationships with college 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 United States. Students will be selected by application: a minimum GPA of 3.0 in college prep or academic courses is required. Priority application deadline is February 21; second round is March 10 (later applications will be accepted on a space-available basis to June 1). Complete program cost is $100 (includes tuition, room, board and all materials). Substantial funds are available for travel and tuition assistance. Students may indicate preference for either site.
