"I Am College Bound/I Applied" General Information


Each November, New Hampshire's “I Am College Bound/I Applied” campaign assists high school seniors with navigating the college admissions process and ensures each student pursues a postsecondary education. Students are invited to submit at least one college admission application during a dedicated school day with the support of local higher education professionals and their school’s faculty, staff, and administration.

While special focus is placed on assisting students who would be the first in their families to attend college and students who may not have otherwise seriously considered applying to college, all students are encouraged to participate.

Follow-up support and materials regarding completing the college admissions and financial aid processes are distributed as well. Each participating high school receives one $500 scholarship to be raffled and awarded to a participating student.

This campaign is part of the American College Application Campaign, a national effort to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students pursuing a college degree or other higher education credential.
