Nearly $100 million in federal financial aid went unclaimed by 2013 and 2014 Tennessee high school graduates. With the upcoming deadline Jan. 17 for state scholarships, Leadership Memphis is working with current high school seniors to reduce that statistic. They are sponsoring two events, MLK Day of Service on Jan. 13 and FAFSA Goal Sunday on Jan. 15. On Jan. 13, teams will canvass neighborhoods targeting high school seniors to complete the FAFSA and high schools and organizations will host workshops. On Jan. 15, churches across Memphis and Shelby County will participate in FAFSA Goal Sunday to assist their graduating seniors with completing the FAFSA. For a list of locations and times, visit http://www.fafsamemphis.com/upcoming-events or search the hashtag #FAFSAMemphis on Twitter.

New York City’s high school system is built on choice, but in reality many of the city’s low-income students of color are shut out of its top schools. Now, the city is trying to figure out how to give more students a fair shot — and in the process make schools more diverse. Chalkbeat NY has been following this story closely, and now we’re inviting people from across the system to join us in a conversation about what can be done to improve this process. Get your tickets here. Catch up with our reporters and connect with others who care about New York City schools at this solutions-oriented panel discussion and networking event. Your $17 ticket donation supports Chalkbeat, and drinks and appetizers are on us! (Two drink tickets for either beer or wine will be provided to guests over 21 years old.) Happy hour will begin at 6 p.m., followed by a panel discussion at 6:45 with additional time for mingling once the panel wraps. We look forward to seeing you there!
