Educator and Student Opportunities from the College Board
For educators: the College Board Fellowship Program is an initiative to identify, recognize, and reward rising leaders of color who are especially effective in closing the achievement and attainment gaps that separate African American, Latino, Asian Pacific and Native American students from their white peers. The Fellowship program will provide emerging leaders of color with a formal mentorship, fully funded travel to the College Board Forum and a one-time one-year $5,000 award to support the work that they are doing to improve educational opportunities and outcomes for students of color. We are seeking a diverse group of people ages 28-45 representing both K-12 and higher-ed; from the worlds of practice, policy, research, and advocacy; representing all regions of the country as well as rural, suburban, and urban areas. Applications are due May 18, 2018.
For students: the annual #Collegiance Campaign for students has launched. #Collegiance celebrates high school students making their college decision by encouraging them to pledge their #Collegiance on Instagram. Students who create an original and creative Instagram video, Boomerang, or photo will be entered for a chance to win one of 10 cash prizes. The winners will be selected by media and film professors from College Board member institutions. Student submissions are due on May 15, 2018. You can find more information about the competition here: https://pages.collegeboard.org/collegiance and there is also a digital toolkit for schools to help spread the word to students.
