EMERGING SCHOLARS: Key to College Admissions Day

During this one-day program, high school students and parents will learn about the millions of dollars in scholarship opportunities, eligibility requirements, and guidance on how and when to apply for various scholarship opportunities, including those from CLD’s college and university partners. Additionally, participants will learn resume, essay and scholarship writing tips. The program concludes with an opportunity for families to engage with college representatives in a college fair.

Senior CLD Alumni are provided with formal applications to the Center for Leadership Development partner scholarships.

Guidelines for Potential CLD Scholars: If you are a senior (12th grade) in high school and have successfully completed the following programs, you are qualified to apply for CLD College Partner scholarships upon completion of Emerging Scholars:

In Time. On Time. The program will begin promptly at 10:00 AM. Any Seniors arriving after the program begins will not receive scholarship applications. Seniors applying for CLD partner scholarships must have successfully completed the Self-Discovery/Career Exploration Project program and the College Prep program.
