Representatives from more than 80 colleges like Dallas Baptist, Grambling State, Penn State and the University of Oklahoma will be there.
Local businesses like the IDTC Career Center, Tarrant County Sheriff's Office, Kamans Art and many more will conduct on-site interviews for summer and post-high school graduation opportunities.

Paying for higher education or continuing your education after high school graduation can be the most challenging and stressful part of pursuing a degree. Thankfully, financial aid programs and scholarships can help relieve the financial burden of an education and allow students to focus on their studies. IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, PLEASE AVOID STUDENT LOANS OF ANY KIND. Almost every college requires students and parents to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA.
We will give you the resources to receive Grants, Scholarships and Work/Study programs to earn money as your working on the campus while being a student there as well. We will also help you apply for Private Scholarships. Other ways to reduce the cost of college is by taking credit-by-exam programs such as Advanced Placement (AP) and the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), and while not every college accepts these scores, students can save up to a year's worth of tuition by scoring well on these tests.
Another resource Shoot 4 Da Stars will help our Students with is called the Early College or Dual Enrollment Programs: Students in some of these programs can complete two years of college classes while still in high school. Another resource is to Start Locally and Transfer: Students that take this route enrolls at a two-year local Community College or Junior College before transferring to a four-year school. Shoot 4 Da Stars will help you START your goals in life but it's up to YOU TO FINISH YOUR GOALS rather it's going to an on the job training Technical School, Local Community College or Junior College, a University, Military or wanting to become an NBA superstar we here at Shoot 4 Da Stars will GUIDE you in the correct direction.
