Crowder College Business Schoarship!

I am pleased to announce a $500 renewable scholarship opportunity for incoming freshmen majoring in Business at Crowder College Fall 2023. Please share this scholarship form with interested seniors. The awarded amount will be $500 per semester and will be renewable up to 3 consecutive semesters (fall/spring only) and we hope to award a total of 2-3 scholarships.


It is our desire to recruit your very best seniors who plan on majoring in a Business field at Crowder College. These majors include:

  • A.A. Business Administration
  • A.A.S Business – Accounting Option
  • A.A.S Business – Management Option


Our Associate of Arts (A.A.) Business Administration degree can be completed entirely online or on ground and is a wonderful program for students planning to transfer and major in business at a four-year institution. Our Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S) Business degrees focus on a specific field and prepare students for the workforce after degree completion. Although not designed to transfer to a four year institution, many of our A.A.S. programs and classes do transfer, depending on the transfer institution.


Prospective students may complete the online scholarship application at: 


Current students (Dual Credit or those with a Crowder ID) may complete the online scholarship application at:


I would encourage any student who plans to attend Crowder College in the fall to complete this scholarship application. Students may apply for multiple scholarships, but to be eligible for this scholarship, they must be a business major.


The 2023 Business Scholarship Priority Deadline is April 15th. The award winners will be announced by May 1st.


Again, thank you for sharing this wonderful opportunity with your students. In addition, I would enjoy the opportunity to visit with your interested high school students. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to setup an appointment or visit.  I have attached the scholarship award information.

As the application deadline for Early Decision II and Regular Decision approaches, we remain focused on the ways in which we can provide helpful information, resources, and support!  We hope sharing this information in advance of the deadline will make this a less stressful time for you and your students.

1. If you haven't already, we invite you to join us on This will allow you to view your students' application status, review any incomplete items, and see admissions decisions once they are announced.

2. While we ask students to submit their applications by the published January 4 deadline, we will accept school-based application materials from counselors through Monday, January 9. We know that each new school year brings new challenges. As always, we seek to be flexible and accommodating, and we anticipate providing grace to students and counselors who need extra time. As Admissions Officers are evaluating applications, our Admissions Services Coordinators are here to help. You should reach out to them if you anticipate a delay in providing materials beyond the January 9 deadline.

3. We will begin communicating with students who have applied to our EDII and RD rounds to encourage them to use the Pathway in order to check status updates for their applications. We do this so that students 1) are aware of the documents that may still be outstanding and 2) know that we are working with counselors and teachers to make sure we have what we need to complete their application. Our goal is to create a more transparent process with the hope that we can remove (or at least not contribute to) the anxiety that comes along with application deadlines.

4. We will communicate with students prior to decision release in each round, so they have time to prepare and plan for how they will view their application decision. We will notify counselors at the same time, so you can also be prepared to best support your students.

Please know that we see and appreciate all you do for your students each and every day. And we value your partnership, as we work to put students first in all we do.

If you have any questions or concerns that have not been addressed in this communication, please feel free to reach out to us by phone at (314) 935-6000 or (800) 638-0700 (toll-free) or email.

Happy almost fall, from the SWMO Area Health Education Center (AHEC)!  I hope these first few weeks back have been kind!

SWMO AHEC has started a new 5-year grant and we want to partner with you and your school to continue bringing healthcare career exploration opportunities to your students.


I've attached a letter detailing the numerous healthcare career exploration opportunities that we can offer in your school.  We have virtual options also if that is your preference. We are always willing to attend any career-awareness activities/events for students like career fairs and visit with students about the health sciences and provide the Missouri Hospital Association’s Health Career Guides, which are a great resource for exploration.

We are also teaching American Heart Association CPR and First Aid courses for the community and this page outlines our available courses here:


I am looking forward to hearing from you and working with you and your students this year!

I know certain schools have trouble with attachments so I’m pasting the letter below also…


My name is Heather Booth, and I work for the AHEC (Area Health Education Center) serving the Southwest Missouri area. As a school in our area of coverage, I am writing to inform you of the health-related educational activities that AHEC can provide to interested students, to encourage them to pursue health-related fields post-high school. Most of these activities are completely FREE!


AHEC is a great resource for our region’s schools; we love creating partnerships with our local area schools, and we strive to assist students of all demographics. We have a new 5-year grant and we are excited about new partnerships!


We are aligning with the National Health Science Standards and have also worked to align our offerings with Health Education DESE GLEs. We have two required topics with our grant (Health Careers Presentation/Exploration including information on Public Health career fields and Infection Prevention) and the rest we can offer as a “menu” of possible options. We request at least 3-4 total visits over the school year for our partnership so we can best meet the needs of both our grant and our educators and students.


Our first and second visits are listed, and the remaining topics/options are for you to choose!



  In-School Healthcare Career Pipeline Programming Opportunities:

Health Careers Introduction (1st visit)	College Prep/Financial Aid- MO Connections 
Infection Prevention with Gowning and Gloving (2nd visit)	Triage/Disaster Simulation Activity
Breast Cancer Awareness/Testicular Cancer Awareness 	Virtual Lab tours/Virtual College Visits 
CPR and First Aid in-school trainings (not certification)	Study Skills/Time Management 
Vital Signs Training	Case Study (basic patient care/wellness)
Cultural Awareness/Competency	Health Literacy
Oral Health Education/Careers	Mental Health Awareness/Education- OUD/SUD 
Animal Dissection (School provides specimens; prices often range from $15-$30 per specimen, which can be used for 2-3 students) AHEC can provide all tools and instruction (case-by-case basis)	Phlebotomy and Injections- $$ associated for injection supplies/needles

Nutrition Education/Careers (free)
Cooking Class/demos available- $$ associated for food supplies	AHA CPR and/or First Aid Certifications- as available-$
$50 each for either CPR or First Aid (4-hour course for each), $80 for both (6+ hour course)

Greetings A+ Coordinators!

Ozarks Technical Community College - Admissions Team would like to coordinate with you, your students, and, their parents about the use, timeline, rewards, and ongoing transfer benefits students will have using the A+ Scholarship!



We would like the opportunity to meet with your students in several different ways:

  • Classroom visits at the appropriate grade level before students have the opportunity to enroll in the A+ program
    • This will be a large general info session to introduce students to the A+ Scholarship program- typically in a classroom setting or can be in a large assembly format for all grades 8th-11th.
    • We would like to host this once every school year.
  • Classroom visits with current students enrolled in their A+ tutoring class block
    • We would like to visit with students who are preparing to graduate high school within the next year to go over a timeline of their next steps during their last year in high school and what their steps would look like if they are applying to OTC or other community colleges in the state.
    • We also wish to reinforce that it is possible to transfer smoothly to a bachelor’s degree program or use A+ to earn an associate degree or certificate and immediately enter the workforce.
    • We would like the opportunity to meet these students each time your A+ tutor class rotates or changes- most commonly is once a semester. YES, even this semester!
  • Evening info sessions for parents and students who are considering A+
    • This is for parents and students considering A+ who want to know what A+ entails, what is expected of the student, and the benefits of using the A+ Scholarship at a community college.
    • This can be held at your school or can be coordinated to be held at any OTC location if a group of local schools wishes to participate.
    • We would like to host this once every school year.


Each of these presentations will engage both parents and students in the following:

  • How the student earns the A+ Scholarship (in coordination with the school counselor/A+ coordinator)
  • Benefits of the A+ Scholarship
  • Critical things to remember when you are enrolled in any community college and using A+
  • How to enroll in A+ and the timeline up to graduation (in coordination with the school counselor/A+ coordinator)
  • Another timeline explaining how to use the A+ Scholarship with OTC
  • Programs OTC offers
    • Including programs that are built for students to enter the workforce after earning an associate degree or certificate
    • Also including programs that are set up to transfer to 4-year institutions
  • Explaining how students can transfer to a 4-year university after OTC & what to prepare for during their first 2 years in college
  • Going over Core 42 Transfer Credits
  • Special overview of how students can transfer to Missouri State University
    • How to prepare to transfer
    • Who to keep in contact with
    • 2+2 degree plans that have been coordinated between OTC and MSU
  • Time for Q+A and the opportunity for parents/students to ask questions about the A+ Scholarship and programs OTC has to offer


Ultimately, we want to stress to students the huge economic benefit of using the A+ Scholarship program whether their goal is to earn a degree and get into the workforce or continue to a 4-year college after using the A+ Scholarship benefits at a community college. We also want to reassure students that everyone has different options for college that will fit their needs and wants best. We want to fully support them in whatever goals they have and promote the A+ Scholarship as an opportunity for all Missouri students to utilize as a tool for training and further education after high school. In addition, we hope our info session will help counselors and A+ coordinators with the volume of questions and inquiries they receive from parents and students by collaborating in this group effort.


We would love the opportunity to plan these A+ Scholarship Info Sessions with you and your students. It is possible to fit and mold these info sessions to best fit your school and district. For smaller schools, a quick info session with interested students might only take a class hour. For larger schools, we can find availability to visit with students at every class block in a specific classroom (ex: A+ Tutoring Block, Personal Finance, Career Exploration, etc) or attend an assembly-style event. Evening parent events can be held at your school or your closest OTC campus if a group of local schools wishes to participate. We do not wish for these visits to replace our current school visits that we have done previously or have planned as these info sessions would be an additional visit to specifically focus on the A+ Scholarship and its economic benefits for all types of students.


If you’d like to coordinate with us to host any or all of these A+ Scholarship Info Sessions, please reach out to Ali Gould at 417-447-2621 or


We look forward to collaborating with you this school year!


Best Wishes!

The University of Tulsa!


As many high school seniors are making their final college decisions and planning for their first semester of university life this fall, our staff is already thinking about your rising juniors and seniors and how we can connect with them throughout the spring and summer. We offer several ways for students to discover TU as they start to weigh where they will apply.

SCHEDULE A CAMPUS VISIT - Students who visit TU are blown away by the friendliness of our community and the beauty of our campus. We invite them to schedule a date and time that fits their schedule and to spend a half-day at TU touring with University Ambassadors, meeting admission staff, and chatting with a faculty member in the academic area that interests them. We look forward to welcoming them to TU.

VIRTUALLY CONNECT WITH A PROFESSOR - Our professors want to talk with students about opportunities within their academic program. Research, curriculum, student organizations, graduation rates, and where students are finding jobs can be topics of discussion. 

SIGN UP FOR A VIRTUAL ADMISSION PRESENTATION - If prospective students aren't ready to visit TU in person, they can register for a virtual admission presentation to get a feel for life at TU. Hosted by a TU admission counselor, these virtual presentations provide students a platform to ask questions about all aspects of campus life from academics to student involvement.

WATCH A VIRTUAL TOUR OF CAMPUS - Our virtual campus tour is a great way to see the campus for the first time. With video clips, 360 photos, and descriptions of many buildings on campus, students can picture themselves at TU and then register for an in-person visit. 

We hope you will share these opportunities with your students and that they take advantage of these resources. 

Thank you for all you do!

BU Summer Journalism Academy

Dear Colleague:

It's that time when your students are searching for summer programs that tap into their interests and begin the next chapter of aligning themselves with their future career goals.

At the Boston University Summer Journalism Academy, students will have the opportunity to learn from award-winning working journalists and to experience Boston University and the city of Boston. For 13 years, Boston University’s College of Communication has offered this program to teach high school students in-person and virtually about core skills in news reporting, interviewing, and writing, while focusing on hands-on experience around Boston and their home communities. Parents and students enjoy hearing that there are no third-party vendors involved, and they can experience an authentic pre-college experience at a college on their list.

Our program helps students learn practical skills over each two-week session and have a chance to experience how newsrooms operate in-person or virtually.

For students living on-campus, they have the opportunity to:

  • Meet with Boston University's representative to discuss the college admissions process
  • Explore what it's like living in a residence hall and studying in a university environment
  • Experience Boston’s museums, historical sites, and neighborhoods during free time

Two-week sessions begin on June 20, July 4, and July 18. Students may decide if they would like to attend our program in person or virtually. They also can participate in our writing and reporting program, photojournalism program, or both.

If you have a student who wants a real college experience this summer and wants to pursue a communication degree, encourage them to learn more by visiting our website and applying soon, as limited seats are available for our in-person sessions.

If they are accepted to our program and pay the registration fee by March 31, they will receive a special discount of $400 off the tuition for in-person programs (EARLYCAMPUS22) and $200 off the tuition for virtual programs (EARLYRLFH22).
