iMentor AFSE College Applications
Organized by: Primo Lasana
EVENT DATE Dec 01, 2015
The senior class at AFSE (Academy for Software Engineering) is applying to college! Many students and families cannot afford the cost of college applications for CUNY, SUNY, and private colleges. CUNY applications cost $65 for six schools, SUNY applications cost $50 per school, and private schools vary in cost.
Any students who would like to use the funds that you help raise will have to fill out a form for the college counselors and administration at AFSE. These students will be carefully vetted by the counselors and administration to ensure that the funds are used wisely on our most needy students. Any student receiving funding must submit tax returns to be considered. In the case that the funding that is raised exceeds the need of the senior class - this money will be used for senior fees and prom fees for the neediest students.
Many employers are willing to match your donations, so ask your company if you are interested in giving. Please also feel free to share this with your friends and networks if you would like to do so. All donations will appear as anonymous donations - we are doing this so that students do not have access to those who do or do not donate.
The work that the iMentor community does is incredible. your time, energy and commitment are deeply appreciated by the staff and students at AFSE. If you have the capacity or desire to help in this fundraising, effort – great! If not, your mentorship is more than enough and please encourage your mentee to take advantage of this funding if you see a need. If you have any questions at all, please reach out to Primo Lasana at firstname.lastname@example.org.
