Seniors: First Step Award Application is Open Now - Due 5/7/18

The Berkeley High School Development Group (BHSDG) raises funds to enhance academic projects for all high school students to strengthen their educational experience. One initiative includes bridge funding to college bound students whose FAFSA/ Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) for college is determined to be $2,000 or less. The donors of BHSDG want to support students in a successful transition to higher education. Thank you to the BHSDG and its donors!

The First Step Award is available to any qualifying student who has enrolled at an accredited four year college (or community college for eligible Dream Act students) and shows EFC less than $2,000.
