“Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela

We at DFW International community Alliance recognize the significant role education has played in our nation’s growth and success as well as in the ability of its inhabitants to pursue their right to happiness.

For several years we have offered this Scholarship Guide as a downloadable database for minority students and for children of “New Americans” who may not be aware of the many opportunities for scholarships available to them. Over 44% of North Texas residents are immigrants and their children. Their impact in our cultural, economic and political well-being must be recognized and supported. As they continue to assimilate, their hopes and dreams become the story of our country to the rest of the world. This Guide is a small symbol of our gratitude to them and to the dedicated educators who wish to assist them to reach their personal and economic goals.

We are grateful for the continued support of Ernst & Young and to the many local colleges, organizations and individuals that provided essential materials.

ANNE MARIE WEISS ARMUSH – President And Founder DFW International Community Alliance

 

Our MISSION is to build mutual understanding and respect by linking diverse international cultural communities.  Nuestra MISION es construir lazos que creen un mutuo respeto y entendimiento entre las diversas comunidades internacionales que viven en el norte de Texas.

COLLEGE PREP CURRICULUM

Excerpted from: ACE American Council of Education

www.collegeispossible.org

College admission officers see your course schedule as the outline of your high school education. Take at least five solid academic classes every semester, including the following:

  •   English – Four or more years (grammar, composition, literature, etc.
  •   Mathematics – Three or more years (Algebra I and higher does not include general math, business math, or consumer math)
  •   Natural Sciences – Three or more years (biology, chemistry, physics, etc.)
  •   Social Sciences – Three or more years (history, economics, geography, civics, psychology, etc.)
  •   Additional Courses – Some colleges and universities require other classes such as a foreign language, theater, music, computer science, etc.

 

OTHER ELEMENTS THAT HELP YOU SUCCEED

Excerpted from: College Board Connect to College Success http://www.collegeboard.com

Advanced Placement Program (AP) – These exams offer the credit or ad- vanced standing at most of the nation’s colleges and universities. If you do well, you can save time and money while learning.

Extra-curricular activities – One can join different clubs in schools to get in- volved in various activities, and also become a volunteer.

Work experience – Year-round or summer internship (paid or unpaid) can help you identify career interests and goals, and gain real work experience. Be sure to list these on your application.

Be aware of your class ranking. More and more colleges and universities are considering class rank when admitting students. Some Texas universities auto- matically admit top 10 percent students of the class.

TESTS For COLLEGE ADMISSION

  •   PSAT – Most students take the PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test) in the fall of their junior year in high school.
  •   SAT – A 3-hour exam that measures verbal and mathematical reasoning. The maximum possible score is 1600 (800 verbal and 800 mathematics). The ad- missions office in the college or university you plan to attend can tell you which portions of the SAT you might need to take.
  •   ACT Assessment – A 3-hour exam covering four skill areas: English, math- ematics, reading and science reasoning. Max possible score is 36.
  •   Should you take the SAT or the ACT? The SAT & ACT are the two most widely used college entrance exams. Students take it in their junior or senior year in high school. Most colleges and universities will accept scores from either for admissions purposes. However, some schools prefer one over the other. Check your school’s requirements, to make sure.

PART 2: HOW TO ENROLL IN COLLEGE

Choosing which college or university you want to attend is one of the biggest decisions you will make in your life. Remember, your goal is to find the school that is right for your needs, not those of your friends and family. Consider these things:

  •   Does the school offer a good program in the field you wish to study?
  •   What are the admission requirements and can you meet them?
  •   How much does it cost (tution plus housing and meals) and can you afford it?
  •   How big is the college or university?

You can find the answers to these questions on the internet, at college fairs, by visiting the schools, and by contacting the admissions offices of the universities/ colleges.

 

TYPES Of COLLEGES

Excerpted from: AIE Adventures in Education

www.adventuresineducation.org/HighSchool

Community and junior colleges generally offer two-year associate degree pro- grams. For students who decide to continue their studies in a four-year program, the course credits usually transfer to four-year colleges.

Four-year colleges and universities offer bachelor’s degrees in many fields of study. Many also offer graduate programs.

Public colleges and universities are generally less expensive than private colleges. However, the low rates are normally available only to residents of the state. One can be eligible for in-state(resident) fee after 1 year.

Private colleges are usually more expensive than a public university. But they often offer financial aid options that make their cost feasible.

Vocational training schools are privately owned and operated schools that offer a wide variety of vocational courses that take from five months to three years to complete.

COLLEGE APPLICATIONS

Remember, your application makes your first impression for you. Keep a few things in mind when filling out your application:

  •   Always apply to more than one school.
  •   It is always good to apply long before deadline.
  •   Check for early admission dates to save money – sometimes it can be free.
  •   Answer all questions. Don’t leave anything blank.
  •   Type or print your answers. Be neat. Presentation is important.
  •   Include supporting materials (letters of recommendation, examples of your work or interests).
  •   Keep a copy of the application documents for future requirements.
  •   Include any required processing fees with your application.
  •   Fine tune your essay. Don’t ramble. Have someone else review your draft.
  •   Proofread your application. Have a parent or a friend proofread it, too.

PART 3: FINANCIAL AID

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form that most schools use to determine financial aid. Money is awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. Complete it immediately after January 1st of your senior year. Forms are available in your high school or at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

After you submit your FAFSA, you will be sent a Student Aid Report (SAR), which tells how much money your family is expected to contribute to your college education for one year. This helps schools and scholarship organizations know how much money you will need in financial aid.

 

SCHOLARSHIPS

Excerpted from: Latino College Dollars

www.latinocollegedollars.org/index.html

Scholarships are free money that is available to offset the cost of school. Stu- dents have to apply for scholarships, which are awarded on a case-by-case basis, often based on merit, and it does not have to be paid back.

Every scholarship has varying requirements – including its own application, which you will need to get and complete – but it is a good idea to pull together a folder of the following information (or as much of it as you can), as almost all scholar- ships will ask for some combination of these things:

  •   One or two essays
  •   Letter(s) of recommendation
  •   Writing sample
  •   Resume
  •   Transcripts
  •   Copy of Student Aid Report (SAR)
  •   Parent and Student Tax Returns and W-2 Forms
  •   GPA Certification Form
  •   Enrollment Verification Form
  •   Copy of Financial Aid Award Letter

 

Some scholarships require proof of citizenship in order to qualify for a scholarship, but others do not. According to Senate Bill 1528, if you are a foreign student or non-citizen, you may be eligible to be classified as a Texas resident for tuition purposes. If so, you may also be eligible to receive state financial aid.

STUDENT LOANS

Excerpted from: FinAid! The Smart Student Guide to Financial Aid

www.finaid.org/loans/studentloan.phtml

Student loans assist in paying for college, and have a lower interest rate than other loans.  Student loans must be repaid, but not until you are out of school. Federal loans consist of the unsubstitized and substitized Stafford Loans and the Perkins loans.  Each of these loans have different requirements, your SAR will determine which loan(s) you best qualify for.

After you have filled out the FAFSA form, talk to your selected colleges’ financial aid offices and apply early.

  •   Ciencias Sociales – Tres o más años (historia, economía, geografía, etc.)
  •   Cursos Adicionales – Algunas universidades requieren otras materias como

prerrequisitos para admisión como dos o más años de un mismo idioma.

 

OTROS ELEMENTOS QUE LE AYUDARÁN A TRIUNFAR

Advanced Placement Program (AP) –  A través de exámenes AP, tiene la oportunidad de recibir crédito universitario por lo que aprendió sin haber tomado una clase formal y tambien ahorrando dinero.

Las Actividades Extracurriculares – Ser un voluntario,  participar en diferentes organizaciones en la escuela,ser un miembro activo de su comunidad.

La Experiencia Laboral – Los “internships” pueden ayudar a identificar qué tipo de carrera pueda interesarle y aprender de una variedad de experiencias laborales.

El “Class Rank” –  Muchas universidades toman en cuenta su posición durante el proceso de admisión.

 

LOS EXAMENES PARA LA ADMISION UNIVERSITARIA

  •   PSAT – Muchos estudiantes toman el PSAT en el otoño de su tercer año (11o) en la secundaria/preparatoria.
  •   SAT – Un examen de 3 horas que mide el razonamiento verbal, matemático y escritura. El puntaje más alto es 1600 (800 verbal y 800 matemáticas).
  •   ACT – Un examen de 3 horas que comprende inglés, matemáticas, lectura y razonamiento científico. El mejor puntaje posible es 36.

 

Cómo matricularse en la universidad

Escoger la universidad a la cual su hijo quiere asistir es una de las decisiones más importante en la vida. Recuerdele que su meta es encontrar la escuela ideal para sus necesidades, no la de sus amigos o familiares.

Sugiérale hacerse las siguientes preguntas:

  •   ¿La universidad ofrece un buen programa en el campo que deseo estudiar?
  •   ¿Cuáles son los requisitos?, ¿los puedo cumplir?
  •   ¿Cuánto cuesta (la matrícula, vivienda y comidas)?, ¿lo puedo pagar?
  •   ¿Qué tan grande es la universidad, numero de estudiantes por clase, etc.?

 

LOS TIPOS DE UNIVERSIDADES

Community and junior colleges ofrecen generalmente programas de dos años

llamados “associate degree programs”. Para los estudiantes que deciden continuar sus estudios en un programa de cuatro años, los créditos generalmente se trans- fieren a las universidades de cuatro años.

Four-year colleges and universities ofrecen “bachelor’s degrees” en múltiples campos de estudio y también muchas ofrecen programas de post-grado. Universidades Públicas son generalmente más económicas que las universidades privadas. Sin embargo, los bajos precios normalmente solo están disponibles para residentes del estado. Uno puede calificar después de un año de vivir en ese estado. Universidades Privadas son por lo general más caras que las universidades públicas, pero frecuentemente ofrecen ayuda que hacen accesible el costo.

Escuelas Vocacionales ofrecen una amplia variedad de cursos vocacionales.

Scholarship_Guide
Scholarship_Guide

La ayuda financiera

El Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) es un formulario que muchas universidades usan para determinar la ayuda financiera y el dinero es dado por el orden en que reciben la solicitud. Después de entregar su FAFSA, les enviarán un reporte de ayuda financiera (SAR) que le informará cuánto dinero se espera que su familia contribuya para la educación superior de su hijo en un año. Esto ayuda a la universidad y a las organizaciones de becas saber cuánta ayuda financiera necesitará.

 

LAS BECAS

Las becas son dinero donado que ayuda con el costo de los estudios. Algunas becas requieren prueba de ciudadanía para poder calificar, pero otras no. De acuerdo a la ley House Bill # 1528, si es un estudiante extranjero o no ciudadano, usted podría calificar para ser considerado un residente de Texas para la matricula. También, usted podría recibir ayuda financiera del estado.

 

LOS PRESTAMOS

Los préstamos estudiantiles ayudan en la matrícula para la universidad, y tienen un porcentaje de interés bajo en comparación de otros préstamos. Los préstamos estudiantiles deben ser pagados después de terminar su educación superior.

Los préstamos federales se llaman Stafford y Perkins. Cada uno de estos préstamos

tiene requisitos diferentes.
