Help Save TAP
Participate in the “Invest in Me” Email Campaign
Starting Feb. 4, when you launch Internet Explorer on any LIM College computer terminal you will automatically be taken to the website for the “Invest in Me” email campaign.
We need your help! New York State’s Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) grant is a need-based financial aid program that helped more than 270 LIM College students last year. The state’s Executive Budget for 2010-11 calls for cutting TAP by more than $71 million, which would reduce all future TAP awards.
We need to let our elected officials know how important it is to protect funding for the TAP program by participating in the “Invest in Me” email campaign. Your support can make a difference, as past email campaigns have helped to prevent the reduction of TAP awards!
You can also access the campaign directly here: http://ga1.org/campaign/investinme/
All LIM College students can participate and those who do so will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 American Express gift card. There will be two winners. You can participate in the TAP email campaign ONCE every weekday after 9 a.m., and with each email you send, we will give you another entry in the drawing. So the more you participate, the more chances you’ll have to win.
1. You will see the “Invest in Me” campaign page every time you open Internet Explorer at LIM College. Scroll down the page to the form and fill in your information. If you live in New York State, use your home address. If you do not live in New York, use the College’s address: 12 East 53rd St. New York, NY 10022.
2. Click on the “Send This Message” button. This automatically sends emails to elected officials. You can participate only ONCE each weekday. The system is reset at approximately 9 a.m. every weekday. After your messages are sent you will automatically be taken to the APC Colleges website.
3. The campaign will automatically record how many times you participate. We will use this information to determine the number of entries you will receive in the gift card raffle, which will be held on March 5.
As a community we can make a difference. Thank you for your support of TAP!
