About This Event:


Saturday sessions: August 22, 2015 - November 7, 2015

The Portfolio Project provides an 11-week boot camp that guides high school juniors and seniors through the college and scholarship application process. Students will create a portfolio of academic and personal achievements that will help them to make appropriate college choices and apply for scholarships.

The sessions introduce students to a new topic and allow students time to work with their mentors to complete parts of their portfolios.
During the Portfolio Project, all students are paired with a mentor. The weekly Saturday sessions start with orientation on August 22, 2015.

Student and mentor applications will be available at www.uncf.org/PortfolioProject starting May 1, 2015

Application deadline is July 10, 2015
