Better Make Room, part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher initiative, is looking for inspiring and hardworking students to serve on its first ever Student Advisory Board.

Members of the Student Advisory Board are committed to making President Barack Obama’s North Star goal a reality–for the United States to lead the world in college completion once again.

The Student Advisory Board’s mission is (1) to create a college-going, college-persisting and college-graduating culture at their schools, and (2) to connect fellow students to any information and resources they might need to succeed.

To be eligible, students must be a current high school junior or senior or in their first or second year of college. Students can apply for consideration as a Student Advisory Board member through Sunday, November 27th at 11:59 PM. Chosen students will be invited to attend both a Student Advisory Board training event and a ceremony honoring their selection at the White House in January 2017.
