HISD to host DREAM Summit workshop to help DREAMers achieve higher learning

HISD’s 2022 DREAM Summit is set for Saturday, Dec. 10, and returns to in person for the first time since 2019.

The free event hosted by College & Career Readiness in collaboration with Multilingual Education will take place from 9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center, 4400 W. 18th Street, 77092.

The event aims to help HISD DREAMers, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients, visa holders, permanent residents, refugees, and asylum grantees learn more about the college application process and financial aid requirements.  

Admissions representatives from several community colleges and Texas universities will be on hand to answer questions and will host information sessions on the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA). The summit will also include college information sessions, a college and resource fair, and a financial aid application lab for seniors.

High school students and their families are encouraged to attend. Students can contact their campus college access coordinator, counselor, or college advisor regarding transportation.
