Special Thanks to Our Partner Organizations:
Planning for a future during a crisis is hard for anyone, let alone students graduating from high school.
When the COVID-19 pandemic closed schools in March 2020, many high school seniors were left stranded. With schools shuttered, students lost direct access to teachers and school counselors who typically help students figure out what comes next. As a result, many students now find themselves very uncertain about life after graduation.
Still, there is a future out there, and Student 5.0 will help Class of ’20 grads define theirs.
Through this entirely virtual program, Student 5.0 participants will be:
Eligibility: Class of ’20 Connecticut public high school graduates who (1) have not started the college application process, or (2) have started but not finished the college application process and have some loose ends, including financial aid forms/FAFSA, or (3) have finished the application process but could benefit from pre-college/career support.`
The program is offered in Spanish. Follow this link for a program flyer in Spanish.
Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis.
More details can be found here. Participants successfully completing Student 5.0 will receive a $200 prepaid debit card.Student 5.0 Participant Application: Click Here Student 5.0 Program Flyer
