College Planning?

Check out this website!
Are you college bound?  Are you wondering how to pay for it?
The NH Higher Education Assistance Foundation (NHHEAF) has created the site http://www.iamcollegebound.org
The goal of I Am College Bound site is to provide New Hampshire high school students with the inspiration, information and planning support to pursue higher education goals.  The site especially encourages low-income students, their parents and their mentors to recognize that NH campuses and the US Department of Education offer strong financial aid programs which enable eligible individuals to access financial assistance in paying for education beyond high school.
As teens interact with the website, they earn credits which qualify them for monthly drawings for NH college gear and incentive awards to help reduce tuition costs.
