3 Excellent Summer Opportunities for You

Dear Scholars,

Now that the summer is here, we encourage you to continue to invest in yourself and your future. Here are three opportunities available to you. Happy Summer!

1. Meet ALPFA

The Association of Latino Professionals For America (ALPFA) provides networking, professional leadership opportunities, and access to thousands of paid summer internships through hundreds of corporate partners.

You may become a member to access their online services and their college-based chapters. If your college has a chapter, check it out. Some of our Scholars are members and have found ALPFA to be helpful.

Also, the ALPFA National Convention is coming up on August 3 to 6 in Nashville, TN. Thousands of Latinos will gather to learn, network, and find jobs and internships!

2. Make your Scholarship Award last longer

Modern States offers over 40 tuition-free online courses which may give you academic credits at your college. Taught by professors from leading universities, the courses prepare students for the College Board (CLEP) exams. They will even pay for your exam fee!

Take the class, pass the CLEP test and you may get free credits. It’s a smart way to save money, graduate faster and make your Scholarship award last longer.

To sign up, visit Modern States or watch this webinar we did in Spring 2018. Questions? Contact their CEO, [email protected], and identify yourself as a TheDream.US Scholar.

3. Free Four-Day Online Career Conference

This virtual Grad Career Festival, held from June 25th – 28th, will feature 36 career authors and coaches.

Each will share tips you can use to explore career opportunities, create a career plan, manage your career, and organize your job search.

You can participate in the entire 36 hour career conference or just in the presentations that interest you.
