College Greenlight is one of the more exciting college admissions initiatives to come along in recent years, for its focus is on first-generation and underrepresented students. One of the great barriers to college for many students is money -- not a big surprise when the country's most selective colleges now have total price tags in excess of $60,000 a year.
The good news is that there are billions of dollars of scholarship funds out their for the students who take the time to apply. On Saturday, March 2nd from 10am-10pm, College Greenlight will be hosting a Scholarship Marathon to both encourage and support students as they apply for scholarships. You can visit the College Greenlight blog to learn more about the event and some of the perks and incentives.
