Would you like to learn about affordable college? Would you like to realize your dream of college for yourself or your children? How about crushing the burden of student loan which sometimes puts generations of family into debt?

American Pakistani Public Affairs Committee (APPAC) – Educational Empowerment Program is announcing Informational Workshop on:

“Tuition-Free Degree Program: The Excelsior Scholarship Informational Workshop” at our Belmont office, Brooklyn New York on July 14th, 2017.

Leading the way in affordable education, New York State is now home to the nation’s first accessible college program – The Excelsior Scholarship.

Education is one of the most important parts of the APPAC’s work. Simply put, we believe that education is the key to lifting families out of poverty and empower them increasing their opportunities for success in life.

The new Tuition-Free Program begins in Fall 2017. Enhanced Tuition Awards will be phased in over three years, beginning for New Yorkers making up to $100,000 annually in the fall of 2017, increasing to $110,000 in 2018, and reaching $125,000 in 2019.

New York State is planning that under this groundbreaking program, more than 940,000 middle-class families and individuals making up to $125,000 per year will qualify to attend college tuition-free at all CUNY and SUNY two- and four-year colleges in New York State. The new program begins in the fall of 2017 and will be phased in over three years.

Applications now being accepted through July 21st 2017

During our workshop we will inform you of everything you need to know about New York’s tuition-free program, including eligibility requirements, how the program is implemented, and other frequently asked questions.

Attending our workshop, you will also learn how you or your child can be eligible for Enhanced Tuition Awards too. We will tell you about Enhanced Tuition Award Program of New York and provide necessary information to sign up for this program.

APPAC will also inform you about its new initiative of Free SAT Preparation Program under its Educational Empowerment Program.

The workshop is open to all interested persons, in particular parents and their pre-college age children. If you would like to attend, please RSVP by reaching out to our email – info@appac.co or call us at 1-877-62 APPAC or 718-2079550. Please RSVP by July 12th 2017.
