Not every student begins her/his education with the same resources. Academic Talent Search (ATS) at Sonoma State University is dedicated to assisting students to achieve their academic best and to maximize their choices by exposing them to information they may not have otherwise encountered. We aim to provide our students with tools that will help them overcome barriers, which could prevent them from attending the college of their choice upon graduation from high school.

College Greenlight Marathon gets some ATS traffic

visit to UC Berkeley
On February 25th, some ATS students invested precious Saturday hours to explore colleges and search for scholarships during the College Greenlight Marathon. Just by participating, students were eligible for hourly raffles to earn up to $100 in gift
cards and qualify for a $1,000 scholarship by uploading photos of completed scholarship
applications and visits to college campuses or college fairs, an updated college list, or a college application. We identified the ten most active ATS participants and awarded them $10 Starbucks cards. We like to reward resourcefulness!
All ATS students are urged to set up a profile at College Greenlight and avail themselves of the many tools and resources for college exploration and scholarship applications. Indicate you are a member of Sonoma State Academic Talent Search program to gain access to their free resources.
