Queens, NY— Last week, scholars in Khan Foundation's College Access Program celebrated their graduation. The ceremony took place at the Harvest Room in Jamaica, Queens. The College Access Program works closely with 12th grade low-income Queens residents and their families to help students find, apply, and get into competitive colleges while helping them secure scholarships. Special guests in attendance include Akshar Patel, Community Liason for Councilman Daneek Miller, Mizan Chowdhury, Candidate for Congress, and Horace Davis, Founder of the Caribbean American Society of NY.
“Every year our team at Khan Foundation works tirelessly to help low income students get into the college of their dreams. Attending college in the United States is very expensive and it is our mission to ensure that all students get into the school of their choice with generous scholarship and financial aid. This summer Khan Foundation scholars will receive free SAT prep along with six months of college access workshops. We look forward to all current juniors visiting our foundation website and applying right away,” said Dr. Ivan Khan, Executive Director of Khan Foundation.
