Xavier to Summer Honor's Program at Indiana University at PA
Organized by: Gell Family
This is a fundraiser for Xavier Gell, upcoming Junior at Lansing High School, to find the balance of funds needed for a valuable academic opportunity, at Indiana University, that he has been selected for, and are hoping that you would like to help. The Cook Honors College hosts IUP's Summer Honors Program, for talented rising high school juniors and seniors. Students reside on campus, will be attending 60 hrs. of college classes, as well as engaging in many campus, and local activities. It's a unique opportunity to get a first-hand look at college life, as well be immersed in an academic setting stimulating the synthesis of ideas. Now time is running out, and we are hoping you can help him with this opportunity. We are still short of our goal and he is to leave on July 10th! The program cost of $1,375.00 is all set. Now its just the matter of getting him there. The remainder of need is toward the round trip travel expenses, (either 20hrs. RT by rental car or RT airfare), and miscellaneous food and activity expenses.
Furthur details if interested: Xavier has been selected to attend the Cook's 2016 Summer Honors Program, at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. It is a highly selective nationwide program where talented high school juniors and seniors, nominated by teachers, submit an application, references, teacher evaluations and a personal Essay about themselves, in order to be considered. This 2 week program is designed to give students a college like experience and to learn more about higher education. Students will attend college classes (60 hrs.) taught by experienced IUP Professors, that develop critical thinking skills and synthesis of ideas, through analysis of arguments, group discussions, writing, and group presentations. It will be a such a valuable educational experience for him, and help him prepare for his future. Any little bit toward our goal would be so helpful. This is such a valuable opportunity for him, Thank you very kindly. If you are interested, please check out this link: Summer Honors Program - Honors College Admissions - IUP
