CLD to host college fair
The Center for Leadership Development (CLD) will host the 4th Annual College Prep Conference and College Fair on July 23 at the Indiana Convention Center.
In collaboration with their 16 college and university partners, CLD sets out to expose students and parents throughout the state to the idea of college as an available option and to the many opportunities that a college education affords.
Breakout sessions such as Creating a Standout Application, Financial Aid 101, and Parent Purpose: Your Role in the College Admission Process, are just a few of the informative and interactive sessions that will be presented during the conference.
For more information, call (317) 923-8111 or visit www.cldinc.org.
Ivy Tech Community College will award scholarships to every 2011 Indiana valedictorian graduating from an accredited public high school or state accredited private high school.
This is the first community college scholarship program of its kind in Indiana.
Each scholarship, valued at 15 credit hours or roughly $1,500, will be awarded to approximately 373 schools statewide. The student will have two years after graduating high school to redeem the scholarship, which can be redeemed at any of Ivy Tech’s campuses.
Each recipient will receive a letter and certificate. To claim the scholarship, the student must visit the financial aid office at any Ivy Tech campus.
Ivy Tech Community College is the college of choice for more than 200,000 students annually. At Ivy Tech, students can choose to complete a degree program and enter the workforce immediately upon graduation or transfer their credits to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree and beyond.
At Ivy Tech, students can adjust to college, choose a career path and earn a credential before moving on. Students save money and arrive at a four-year school better prepared for the challenge.
Ivy Tech is the state’s largest public post-secondary institution and the nation’s largest singly-accredited statewide community college system with more than 200,000 students enrolled annually.
