Hello Juniors and Seniors,

The deadline for the EXCEL program through Washington State University is coming up on Oct. 8th. This is a free overnight stay on the WSU campus in Pullman. Here is a description of the program:

EXCEL is designed to encourage and promote higher education for Native American junior and senior high school students and introduce them to the opportunities and experiences at Washington State University.

Participants receive important information regarding the application process at WSU, financial aid & scholarships, Native programming and resources at WSU, and more! Native faculty, college students, and members from tribal communities will lead hands on activities, cultural presentations, and college planning workshops. Students will have the opportunity to engage with Native role models and experience life on the WSU campus.

All activities, meals, and lodging are provided AT NO COST to students accepted to the program.

This is a great opportunity for any Blackhawks planning to attend WSU. Come to me in room E 210 if for any questions or help filling out the forms. I have attached a flyer with a sign up link.
