Finding Scholarships that Fit.

This is part 2 of 2 Scholarship Workshops with Becca Lippman. The first session will be at Tarea Hall Pittman South Branch on Thursday, April 4 on the topic College Scholarship Basics.

For part 2 of 2 Scholarship Workshops with Becca Lippman, we'll meet at Claremont Branch on Thursday, April 11 for:  Finding Scholarships that Fit.

By focusing on unique aspects of students as individuals and community members, Becca walks participants through the development of 10-25 customized search terms.

Becca teaches the "5-click strategy" of digging through identified websites with intention.

Participants leave this interactive workshop with:

* a categorized list of search terms for themselves,

* a 3 step process for online searches, and

* a better sense of how public institutions, private donors, and large organizations advertise scholarship opportunities. 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.
