iamcollegebound.orgThe New Hampshire Higher Education Assistance Foundation (NHHEAF) has been working on making available a scholarship for McKinney-Vento eligible students looking to attain a college education. Well, the time has come! NHHEAF has designated 10 scholarships of $2500 each (as part of the I am College Bound Initiative) specifically for McKinney-Vento eligible youth that plan on attending a 2 year or 4 year college this coming September. Recipients will also receive individual college admission and financial aid counseling. The application period for this scholarship has opened now and will close on November 30th at 5 PM. This is a very exciting opportunity for our McKinney-Vento eligible students. Let’s face it, college is not affordable for anyone, but especially for highly mobile and low income students such as our McKinney-Vento eligible students. Please pass this information along to guidance counselors and anybody else in schools or the education field that may benefit from this knowledge. Please check the NHHEAF ( website to learn more about the foundation and other help it offers for students of any sort in attaining a higher education. The two links provided below can provide valuable information.
