CFES Hour: College and Career Chat!
CFES Brilliant Pathways will host a weekly hour to walk high school students through the college admission process, how to pay for college, staying on top of deadlines and more. We know the process can be complex and daunting, our goal is to make sure CFES Scholars have the tools to identify the best path and then help them navigate their way through the college process. To make sure our Scholars are up-to-date on the changes in the landscape of higher education, we will collaborate with college admission, financial aid experts and professionals to help answer your questions.
We ask our Scholars to leave us a question before we go live and we will answer it during the hour and also post the response on our website: College Q&A
