The goal of the I am College Bound campaign is to provide New Hampshire high school students with the inspiration, information and planning support to pursue higher education goals. The Center for College Planning team especially encourages low-income students, their parents and their mentors to recognize that New Hampshire campuses and the U.S. Department of Education offer strong financial aid programs which enable eligible individuals to access financial assistance in paying for education beyond high school. To inform, engage and grow public awareness about financial aid programs, students are incentivized to share content with friends and peers within their networks through monthly promotions.
NOTE: The I Am College Bound site was originally created under a federal grant. Since those grants funds are no longer available for site maintenance and scholarships, the Center for College Planning has moved content to the www.nhheaf.org site. Through this page, students can participate in monthly promotions which provide creative ways for students to learn about college costs, college admission and financial aid. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
I Am College Bound Promo of the Month
Season of Giving
Now is the time when many students are requesting letters of recommendation from teachers, coaches, instructors and other adult mentors. These letters of recommendation will support seniors’ applications for college admission and for scholarships. This month’s promo asks YOU to tell us how YOUR MENTOR has encouraged you to achieve your goals and pursue higher education. Provide a quick summary, in complete sentences and less than 75 words, in the space below. In the spirit of the season, we’ll award the winning entry with an iPad for the student and a $100 Amazon gift card for the mentor! (Please - only one entry per student.)
