Has your school district successfully moved the needle on FAFSA completion? Are your students engaged in counselor-led initiatives to increase college and career readiness?
Share your story! Applications for the Power of Hope Awards are being accepted through Dec. 15.
The honor — a program of the National Postsecondary Strategy Institute (NPSI) in partnership with Reach Higher and Common App — is targeted at rural districts and districts where at least half of all students quality for free or reduced-price meals.
Applicants are asked to share their district’s strategies for promoting postsecondary success. Applicants must also submit evidence of increased FAFSA rates that were attained (and maintained) for two of the past three school years.
Winners will be announced the first week of March at NPSI’s national conference, which will be held virtually.
