CBO Application Deadline Friday

Students encouraged to submit CBO applications by Friday.

(CBO) is a mentoring and scholarship program for students who need financial assistance and could use the help of a mentor to guide them through the college application process and their four years of college. High school juniors are selected for this program through an application and interview process.

Applications are due this Friday, January 6th. The criteria for this program are: A minimum grade point average of 2.8, a critical need for a mentor to help guide the student through the college process and through the four years of college, and a household income of not more than $60,000 for a family of four, barring any extraordinary circumstances.

The CBO scholarship program relies on the generous financial support and volunteer mentors from the local community.

Applications can be downloaded at www.cbo4edu.org or in the counseling centers at Highland Park and Deerfield High Schools.

For more information about becoming a volunteer mentor for CBO, contact Susan
