The Association of Black Admission and Financial Aid Officers of the Ivy League and Sister Schools (ABAFAOILSS) is sponsoring a one-day program about college admissions and financial aid for *high school students in tenth and eleventh grades* on Saturday, January 8, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Columbia University’s Alfred Lerner Hall (115th Street and Broadway, New York, NY).
ABAFAOILSS was established in 1970 to assist students from historically underrepresented backgrounds gain more knowledge about the college admissions and financial aid processes. The organization is also dedicated to the continued examination and improvement of the policies and practices of identifying, recruiting, selecting and retaining students of color (African American, Asian American, Latino, and Native American) at our respective institutions.
The program will begin with a series of panels that discuss how to conduct a successful college search, an overview of selective college admissions, and a presentation on how to finance a college education.
Students will end the day by meeting with representatives from colleges and universities from around the country. We hope you and your students will be able to attend the workshop.
*Given the popularity of the event, we cannot accommodate group reservations. Students are required to register individually and will be limited to 2 guests. Students are also encouraged to sign up for the workshop and panels early because space is limited.
