HISD to host annual DREAM Summit for Students
Press Release
Tuesday, December 05, 2017

Dec. 5, 2017 – The Houston Independent School District Office of College and Career Readiness and Multilingual Programs department will host HISD’s third-annual Dream Summit to assist students with the college application and financial aid processes on Saturday, Dec. 9, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center, 4400 W. 18th St., Houston 77092.  

The event aims to help HISD DREAMers, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients, visa holders, permanent residents, refugees, and asylum grantees along with their families. Students will have an opportunity to speak with district representatives who will help them learn more about financial aid requirements and guide them through the application process. 

“Right now we are in a time of great uncertainty for many of these students,” said HISD Superintendent Richard Carranza. “It is our responsibility to equip them with the knowledge and resources available to help them remain motivated in their pursuit of success. This summit provides them with the answers they need to move forward with the college application process.”

High school students in grades 9-12, and their families are encouraged to attend the free event.  Students should contact their campus college access coordinator, counselor, or college success adviser regarding transportation. In addition, five HISD seniors will have a chance to win $500 scholarships for college. 

Admissions representatives from many Texas colleges and universities will be on-hand to answer questions and host information sessions about the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA).
