The American Indian Graduate Center (AIGC) is sponsoring Know Before U Go, a FREE one-day session for American Indian and Alaska Native students from 9th-12th grade, parents and educators to learn about college preparation, scholarship opportunities and financial literacy.

The event will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at Oregon Institute of Technology from 9:00 a.m. – 3:10 p.m. in the Martha Anne Dow Center for Health Professionals (DOW) Building.

The free event, which includes breakfast snacks and lunch, is funded by a generous grant from Wells Fargo. AIGC is partnering and collaborating with area colleges, state agencies and local communities, including tribal communities, to highlight the value of higher education and to showcase resources and funding available to students before they enter college.

Starting with our morning session, this event is filled with useful information, inspiring stories, funding opportunities—and the chance for a lucky student to win a free laptop! To register online to attend the event please go the following link at www.aigcs.org/event/know-before-u-go-klamath.
