The Khan Foundation of NYC is offering a FREE opportunity for top performing low-income high school upperclassmen that would be a good fit for their FREE College Access Program.

Khan Foundation (KF) is looking for High School Upperclassmen who are dynamic, highly-motivated and have the willingness to attend FREE weekly Saturday Morning Workshops in our 2015-2016 College Access Program (CAP).

KF is relaunching their ANNUAL FREE COLLEGE ACCESS PROGRAM (CAP) this Fall, beginning (August 1, 2015). CAP will work to help students over the course of 6 months to effectively find, apply to, and attend colleges that are best suited to them as well as assist them with financial aid and scholarships.
