Summer Opportunity -- Free SHPEP 6 Week Program

This summer, senior students will have the opputunity to do a service year with AmeriCorps. This program involves caring for infants and children up to age six who are at risk for abuse and neglect in Houston, TX. Hands of Hope AmeriCorps Members will serve these vulnerable children throughout a 12-month commitment, living in a private, gated community (at no cost) and receiving a living allowance. 

Hands of Hope AmeriCorps Members will work collaboratively with other AmeriCorps Members in the home to ensure that children’s physical, emotional, and mental needs are met. While the commitment to our organization is only one year, the impact AmeriCorps Members have on the children in their care is lifelong. In turn, the children’s strength, resilience, and love will also make a lifelong impact on them. 

This program is currently accepting applications for the September 2024-August 2025 service year. The application can be found at:

MCAT -- Fee Assistance and AAMC Webinar

AAMC Fee Assistance Program: MCAT Benefit
There are many benefits included in the AAMC Fee Assistance Program such as helping pay for the MCAT exam benefit before registration opens later this month. If approved for fee assistance, your students will receive a reduced registration fee ($140, instead of the full price of $335) for MCAT exams. There is also an opportunity to receive financial assistance for an updated evaluation to support an application for MCAT exam accommodations. For more information and instructions on how to apply, please visit aamc.org/accombenefit.
Students should apply to the AAMC Fee Assistance Program before registering for the MCAT exam as AAMC Fee Assistance Program benefits are not retroactive. For example, if you register for the MCAT exam before receiving fee assistance, you will not be reimbursed for the discounted rate. Learn more about the AAMC Fee Assistance Program benefits and eligibility requirements.
