College Greenlight  At College Greenlight we connect first generation and underrepresented students to caring colleges, generous scholarships, and life-changing counselors and mentors.Its mission is to improve college access for low income and first generation students. College Greenlight has an online application where students set up a profile and then they can apply to any of their partner colleges with no application fee, and with a single application. Students set up a profile, and get notifications from colleges that are interested in communicating with them.  Students have the option of accepting the invitation, in which case the college sends them messages through the website, or declining the invitation, in which case they shouldn't hear any more from that college. They also have a scholarship search engine. For College Green light website click here
