Project

Apply yourself! Helping low socio-economic status Latino and African American students achieve their post-secondary dreams

Although enrollment at post-secondary institutions is up overall, there is still a significant gap between the percentages of Caucasian students that attend a post-secondary institution in contrast to Latino and African American students. 
 Sources of Data
 Data for this project were gathered from current intervention programs that assist Latino and African American students with the post-secondary goals, peer-reviewed journals in the field of Education, and census data from the U.S. government.
 Conclusions Reached
 In order to encourage more Latino and African American students to successfully apply to post-secondary institutions, they need a curriculum that can give them current 
 
 information about the application process, access to resources to be able to apply to these institutions, and a supportive environment from teachers and peers.
