This week our Emerging Scholars Team headed to Everett Middle School to introduce the 6th grade students there to First Graduate. The 166 students in attendance listened intently as our Program Director Amph! outlined how students can apply and what they can expect at each step of our 10-year program to help them become the first in their families to graduate from college. Students were very engaged and had tons of questions – just check out the pictures below.
The deadline for new student applications (current 6th graders) is Friday, March 6th.
In order to help these students complete their applications, First Graduate staff are also holding a series of Application Workshops at Everett. During these workshops, students will have the chance to sit down one-on-one with a staff member for about 15 minutes to get help drafting their personal statement, put the finishing touches on their application, and ask any last-minute questions. The next Application Workshop will take place at Everett Middle School on Thursday, February 12th @ 11:00 AM.
