Steps To College 2013 Expects To Serve 2,500 Latino Students From Northern California

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Consul General of Mexico in Sacramento, Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez made the following announcement today on behalf of the Steps to College 2013 Steering Committee:

"We are honored to have the two great public university systems, the California State University and the University of California as major partners in this event. Their support, as well as that of numerous school districts and migrant-support organizations in the region, has allowed us to reach out to hundreds of low-income students from rural areas throughout Northern California, who will be attending the fair for the first time in chartered buses provided by Steps to College."

Steps to College 2013 is a higher education event presented in both English and Spanish, on February 2 nd from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Consulate General of Mexico in Sacramento, located at 2093 Arena Boulevard.

Families may visit www.csac.ca.gov to access the online application.  High school seniors could also qualify for an extra $1,000 Dream in Action scholarships just by attending and applying for a Cal Grant by the March 2 nd deadline.
