Fair Opportunity Project, comprised of college students from Harvard, Stanford and Yale have created a college admissions and financial aid guide being sent to every public high school in America. Attempting to level the college application playing field, Fair Opportunity Project’s mission is to get every student the best college admittance information available, regardless of background. The guide is free.
Fair Opportunity Project received input from college students, high school guidance counselors and top college admissions offices across the nation.
“Fair Opportunity Project gets to the heart of one of the most pervasive inequities in our education system: college access,” says Katherine K. Merseth, senior lecturer at Harvard University and founder of Harvard Teacher Fellows.
The 60+ page guide covers the nuances of what matters in a college application, how to prepare for standardized testing, how to apply to financial aid, how to prepare for interviews and more.
The guide is in PDF format and can be accessed at fairopportunityproject.com.
