Back-to-school season can put a strain on household budgets. Here are some smart ways families can reduce costs as students head back to class:
Miami — Miami Dade College (MDC) has partnered with Florida International University (FIU) with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which will provide a three-year grant of $2,450,000 to maintain growth in the various disciplines of the humanities as an attractive degree and career pathway.
Major Karl Chambers, center, president and founder of Integrity Children’s Fund (ICF), receives the Eagle Award for his leadership and commitment to the organization’s mission of delivering hope and education to Jamaica’s vulnerable children.
MDC’s North Campus, in collaboration with the 5000 Role Models of Excellence, recognized 30 middle school students for their completion of a one-week “college student internship” as part of TheEarly College Experience program. This academic partnership enables eligible participants to experience college during the summer.
