This is a mini-research project I do with my juniors and seniors (at the very beginning of the year). This project requires them to research majors and programs they'd like to study, colleges or trade schools that offer those programs, and scholarships they might be eligible to apply for. It also requires them to complete a college resume so they already have one ready when they begin applying to colleges.
It's relatively simple but it's a great way to get students who might not have even considered college to see that the opportunities are there. They usually have fun researching the scholarships and seeing all the crazy ones that are available!
