CLEVELAND — It is a promise: if you do well, and do good, you will succeed. A free service is being offered to students seeking acceptance to college.
Infinite Scholars is in its eighth year in the Cleveland area. It’s been going on for 16 years nationwide. On Wednesday at Glenville High School, from 9 a.m. until noon, students across Northern Ohio are invited to attend the scholarship fair.
Students are asked to bring their transcript, ACT or SAT scores, two letters of recommendation, and a short essay explaining why they deserve a scholarship.
Winston Gragg helps organize this. He says students must also have a 3.0 GPA.
“We’ve heard families actually say that it actually changed their life, by having a kid go to school,” said Gragg. “So many families are strapped when it comes to income, and they can’t afford to go to schools that they would like to go to. But with this program, if you have a 3-point grade average, it qualifies you for a scholarship on the spot.”
Dozens of universities and colleges are expected to participate.
