Announcing 24 Scholarships for Summer Application Crash Courses

We told you earlier in the week about our awesome summer application Crash Courses and today we’ve got more exciting news:  We’ll be funding scholarships for 24 students to participate in an exclusive course session at the University of St. Thomas from August 6-10, 2012!

During the week-long Scholarship College Application Crash Course, high school juniors will work with All-in-One’s experienced college admissions consultants to complete the key written components of their college applications – a resume, three essays, and the ApplyTexas online application.

“Gone are the days of the one-page college application.  College-bound high school students must now devote hours and hours to draft and compile the many components of their college applications,” said All-in-One Academics founder and Get Your Summer Strategy On author Jessica Givens.  “The All-in-One Academics summer College Application Crash Courses are the best way to get applications done – and done right.  Recognizing that many deserving students would not otherwise have access to our exclusive courses offered at The Houstonian, we are thrilled to partner with the University of St. Thomas to make the Crash Course available to 24 additional students.”

Students will also have the opportunity to hear from admissions personnel from several Texas colleges and tour the St. Thomas campus.

24 students will be selected to participate.  To be eligible, students must:

(1) Have achieved placement in the top 25% of their high school class

(2) Be eligible for College Board fee waivers

(3) Be nominated by their high school counselor.

Counselors may nominate up to five students each.  Nominations must be submitted using the online form available here.

Students will be responsible for securing their own transportation.  Lunch and computer access will be provided each course day.  Please direct any and all questions to

Thank you to the University of St. Thomas for its continuing efforts to improve college access and their generous partnership.  We are looking forward to a great session!
