ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The American Indian Graduate Center is sponsoring Know Before U Go, a free one-day session for American Indian and Alaska Native students in the ninth to 12th grades as well as parents and educators to learn about college preparation, scholarship opportunities and financial literacy.

The event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. on Nov. 3 at the University of Oklahoma Norman in the Jim Thorpe Multi-Cultural Center.

The event, which includes breakfast snacks and lunch, is funded by a grant from Wells Fargo. AIGC is partnering and collaborating with area colleges, state agencies and local communities, including tribal communities, to highlight the value of higher education and to showcase resources and funding available to students before they enter a college or university.

Starting with the morning session, this event is filled with information and funding opportunities as well and the chance for a lucky student to win a free laptop.
