Dear Potential Participant:
My name is Kourtney Igbo and I am a graduate student at Trinity Washington University in Washington, DC. I am in the Master of Science in Administration program with a concentration in Nonprofit Management. I am conducting research on college preparatory programs and the ways in which they increase college readiness. If you graduated from a high school in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area and participated in a college preparatory program (such as AVID, GEAR UP, EXCEL, Upward Bound, Educational Talent Search, or dual enrollment) while you were in high school, I am inviting you to participate in this study.
Participation in this research includes an interview about your experiences in a college preparatory program. If you agree to participate, your total time commitment will be 30-45 minutes.
If you have further questions or would like to participate in this research, I can be reached at email@example.com.
Thank you very much.
