In 1954, the Midland Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) prepared a booklet entitled, “Start Now – And You Can Go to College.” The purpose of the booklet was to create for prospective college students and their parents an awareness of the broad range of opportunities available for financial assistance and to emphasize the need for early planning.
With the help of area guidance counselors and through the efforts of many AAUW members, the original booklet has evolved into the current Higher Education Loans, Plans & Scholarships, HELPS, edition which describes scholarships generously provided by many local organizations and is made available to students throughout Midland County. This is the 60th edition of HELPS which is updated annually.
