10,000 DEGREES INSTITUTE


Have you thought about college? Are you ready to go to college? To help you prepare for the college and financial aid application process, 10,000 Degrees® offers a program called the 10,000 Degrees Institute. To be eligible, you need to 1) be a current sophomore who will be a junior in Fall 2017 and 2) demonstrate financial need.

Being part of the 10,000 Degrees Institute means you will experience both the Summer Intensive college experience and the year-round program in your junior and senior years.

10,000 Degrees Institute Summer Intensive: A Four-Day College Experience

This year’s 10,000 Degrees Institute will begin with the 10,000 Degrees Institute Summer Intensive. It will be held from July 24 – July 27 or July 31 – August 3, 2017. Students will be placed at a local University. Students will stay 4 days and 3 nights in college dormitories.

10,000 Degrees Year-round Program

After you attend the 10,000 Degrees Institute Summer Intensive, you will be supported by a 10,000 Degrees college advisor to help guide you through the process of applying for college and financial aid. You will be expected to meet with your advisor on a regular basis throughout your junior and senior years. Your advisor will help you explore college choices, complete college applications, and meet deadlines for college and financial aid.
