In this introductory workshop, Becca Lippman demystifies the complex networks and application processes related to scholarships. She will break-down the complex landscape of scholarships for college and introduce an approach towards navigating merit and community-based scholarships. Participants will gain a clear understanding of where scholarships come from, why they often feel difficult to find, and what the realistic timeline is when it comes to seeking and winning scholarships for college.

This is part 1 of 2 Scholarship Workshops with Becca Lippman. The second session will be at Claremont Branch on Thursday, April 11 on the topic: Finding Scholarships that Fit.

About the Facilitator: Rebecca Lippman specializes in teaching students to pursue non-university or aid-based scholarships to fund undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Informed by a decade of experience supporting students of all backgrounds at the UCLA Center for Scholarships and Scholar Enrichment, Becca believes that lessons in financial responsibility and institutional navigation go hand in hand with the most transformative learning outcomes of higher education.

Becca partners with multiple public library systems, educational institutions, and college readiness programs to offer workshops that guide staff, students, and parents through the search and application process for pursuing outside scholarships, grants, and fellowships.
