How to...


Move from service to empowerment at your site
Popular Education and Freedom Schools can help empower your community 

Minimize debt during your 4 years
To close the tuition gap, Tell your adviser and favorite professors, who can suggest opportunities, department prizes, awards. Use advanced online searches for scholarships that reflect your profile. Scour Buzz notices for in-house grants. Talk to upperclassmen about how they make ends meet. Work like crazy in the summer. Put out a lot of applications and have a resume that puts you ahead of high schoolers. Keep parents informed.
