Writing for Scholarships: Generate Ideas for a $5,000 Scholarship Within the First Five Minutes of this Seminar—Over $20,000 worth of scholarships in the handout below

Writing for Scholarships Oct 20 2017

Presentation will be on Friday, Oct 20, 2017, from 2:20-3:15 pm in room 117 computer lab (next door to room 116, the Advisement Center)  in the Student Success Center.

In the first five minutes, each student will brainstorm, generating ideas that could be used to apply for the $5,000 Liaison’s Data-Inspired Future Scholarship, deadline for spring semester being October 31, 2017.

This means if students were to enter videos from 30-60 seconds and try for this scholarship, one student would be notified by the end of November 2017 that he or she earned the $5,000, applying that toward college tuition and books for Spring 2018 semester.
