Nearly 400 Attend NMC Cash for College Workshop (June 23, 2010)

Almost 400 individuals looking for means to fund their pursuit of higher education attended the Northern Marianas College’s third Cash for College workshop this past Saturday. Participants were assisted in filling out applications for the CNMI Scholarship Office, the Saipan Higher Education Financial Aid (SHEFA), and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Hourly presentations were also conducted on the College Access Challenge Project (CACP) scholarships, the Gates Millennium Scholarships, and the educational benefits available to military personnel and their immediate family members.

The free workshop took place at NMC’s Building A, which houses 13 classrooms, most of which were used for the workshop. It ran from 9am to 3pm, with participants showing up anytime in between.

“We are very pleased with the turnout at the workshop,” said NMC Interim President Lorraine T. Cabrera. “It’s wonderful to see that many people, from new high school graduates to people ten years out of high school, are taking the initiative to pursue higher education.”

Earlier this month, NMC hosted a miniature version of the workshop for graduating seniors at Kagman High School.

“We look forward to working with the other CNMI high schools in being able to conduct mini workshops at their respective campuses,” added Cabrera.

The Cash for College workshop was made possible by funds from the U.S. Department of Education’s College Access Challenge Grant Program.
