By tamaraThe word ‘diversity’ can mean many things. In academia, it’s a term used to describe the mix of students from under-represented populations. This may include students from minority groups, adult learners, students with disabilities and more. Many schools offer a vast array of resources and free college money to students who belong to an under-represented population. But, where do you start your search for colleges that value diversity? Good news! CollegeWeekLive will be hosting a free online event called Diversity Day on Wednesday, September 14th, from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. EDT. Many diversity topics will be covered through panel discussions and online video chats, including: Making college admissions possible for low-income students Autism in academia College access and success for all Back to school for adult learners Finding a campus that is LGBT friendly Financial resources (FREE MONEY) for diverse students And there’s even more good news! Every student that registers for Diversity Day online and attends this virtual event will be placed in a drawing for a $1,000 scholarship, which may be used on any campus. Increase your chances of winning by referring your friends; you will receive an additional chance for each one that registers and attends. U.S. and non-U.S. students between the ages of 15 and 19 and who plan to enroll in college no later than 2015 are eligible to participate. So, if you ever wondered about diversity on college campuses and what resources might be available to you, now’s the time to find out. We hope to see you there!
