Paying for College With Scholarships: Developing Unique Essays

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM


Given the sheer number of scholarship opportunities out there, it might seem like a heavy lift to craft multiple stories for multiple competitions. Join this interactive workshop and learn how to develop a series of interchangeable written “modules” that can be used to address the most popular aspects of multiple scholarship essay prompts. Participants learn to analyze and identify up to 5 typical varieties of the scholarship essay and walk away with a clear sense of the most relevant content, details, and facts that must be incorporated into strong application materials.

Space is limited so please register to reserve your spot.
