On Monday, January 8 the College Pathways for Tribal Youth will be hosting a College Night from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Community and Government Center. The College night, which will provide guidance with everything from SAT prep and FAFSA assistance to scheduling college visits and scholarship opportunities, is open to all tribal students in the area that are interested in attending college, further their education, currently attending college or recently graduated.
In addition to the amazing educational opportunities that will be promoted, there will also be free food, prizes and giveaways.
The College Night is made possible thanks to the NYCP Building Pathways for Tribal Youth Grant. The Building Pathways grant has opened a wide range of opportunities for tribal students including stipends for mentoring and tutoring, SAT prep, FAFSA assistance, alternative scholarship opportunities, college visits and the College Horizons program. Information on all of these program will be available at College Night.
The deadline for the College Horizons program is February 5. Assistance completing the application will be provided.
