04 Jan Monthly Memo, January 2018
A quick recap of the ongoing work by our amazing students and staff from the previous month.
Financial Aid Renewals
For 10,000 Degrees college students, the focus turns to financial aid renewal, including the 10,000 Degrees Scholarship. As always, our goal is to make sure all of our current college students reapply before March 2, 2018…if not sooner!
Along with the push to renew financial aid awards, our team is busy checking in with each and every current 10,000 Degrees college student to ensure they are officially enrolled full-time for the Winter/Spring 2018 term.
Record High School Outreach
Our efforts to reach more high schools students hit a new high in December. Including financial aid support, A-G awareness, and college applications help, 10,000 Degrees reached over 7,000 students and families since August!
Southern California Fires
More than 30 10,000 Degrees college students have been impacted by the Southern California fires, including at UC Santa Barbara. All partner campuses offer psychological counseling, housing relief, textbook assistance, and more.
Wishing You Well in 2018!
