As Black History Month draws to a close, I am mindful of how fortunate I am to work for two organizations that are strongly committed to the twin, complementary goals of diversity and empowerment. Similarly, New York City Mission Society, for which I am Chair of the Board of Directors, promotes the positive development of underserved young people and families in order to strengthen communities and, as a consequence, our city's diversity.
As it turns out, both Citi and New York City Mission Society are celebrating 200 years of service in 2012. Citi's commitment to diversity spans the organization a€” particularly through the activities of Citi's Employee Networks a€” and the calendar, with events and activities highlighting the months that have been formally designated to celebrate the culture, history and contributions of various communities. Across the country, Citi's African Heritage Networks (AHN) provide a wide range of educational, cultural and fellowship-building opportunities during African American History Month. Ellen Stafford, who has been with Citi in Irving, Texas for a little over four years, got involved with the Dallas-Fort Worth AHN as Communications Chair this year. As Executive Recruiter for North America, Ellen is very aware that Citi provides an even playing field on which qualified applicants, both within and outside Citi, can compete. Ellen is shifting her recruiting focus from IT to sustaining Citi's overall culture of diversity.
More broadly, Ellen would like to see an increase in positive, healthy messages in popular culture, particularly for children, and a continued and strong policy focus on education.

Willie Henry Jr., of Citi's Graduate Recruitment Team in Jacksonville, Florida, is co-chair of the AHN there.

In 2009, the Citi Foundation provided a grant to Cal State University Northridge (CSUN) Student Outreach and Recruitment Services to support its College Can Happen Initiative (CCHI), a strategic and comprehensive program to improve enrollment at the university.
CCHI provides information and encouragement to middle and high school students and their parents, in low to moderate-income (LMI) communities in San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles, to help them prepare for entrance into a four-year college. Many of the students reached by CCHI would be first-generation college students, and the program aims to foster a college-going culture.

It takes some planning, but you can chip away at graduate school costs several different ways, leaving it within your reach.
Application Fee Waivers: At many schools, you can attend an open house or contact an admissions coordinator and have them waive the application fee. Student Discounts: One of those little things that can add up to a lot is your student discount. Graduate School Grants: Unlike loans, grants are basically free money from the government, and they can chop thousands of dollars from your graduate school bill. Graduate Assistantships: This is the classic route to take for graduate students, and there are really no downsides to it, except that you might have to go long stretches without sleep. Tuition Tax Deduction: This may not sound like much, but, the truth is, you can get up to $4,000 chopped off your tax bill this way.
