Program offers a jumpstart on the college process
OKMULGEE, Oklahoma — There are countless steps involved when a student begins considering college and it can be overwhelming when deadlines begin approaching.
To help equip students with the necessary information to help prepare for this exciting yet stressful time, Muscogee Nation Youth Council members Erin Bruner and Jay Fife are teaming with MCN Native Youth Community Project to offer Mvskoke Horizons, a three–day college prep program for Native students living within the MCN boundaries.
Mvskoke Horizons is open to students who will be high school sophomores, juniors and seniors in the 2018-19 school year.
The program will take place July 19-21 in Okmulgee, with accommodations at a local hotel provided.
Space is limited to 50 openings with Dewar, Weleetka and Wetumka students having priority due to grant requirements, yet all interested students are encouraged to apply.
In addition to the online application, students must submit their tribal enrollment card or a CDIB card, a resume and a recommendation letter from a teacher, advisor or mentor.
The course will cover the college application process, admissions essays, federal student aid and scholarships, as well as connecting with schools of choice.
