PASADENA ISD EDUCATION FOUNDATION MINI-GRANT
Applicants: Tara Evans, Laurie Etnyre
Mini-Grant Name: Maverick U
Abstract: CLUELESS! This best describes high school students when making decisions about college. Students have no idea which college they want to attend and do not know how to apply for admissions, scholarships and financial aid. Maverick U is a program that allows the faculty to represent their alma mater and mentor students for that university. The program is already successful, but needs to be taken to the next level. We want students to visit these universities with their mentors to learn about the campus and be an eyewitness to what these institutions have to offer.
Sponsor: Mosher Seifert and Company
