Parents And Students Invited to Free Scholarship Workshop
VANCOUVER, Wash. -- College-bound students and parents interested in learning more about how to pay for college through scholarships can attend a free workshop at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 4 in the Student Services Building lecture hall at Washington State University Vancouver.
The workshop is designed to help students and their families seek scholarship opportunities of all kinds. An overview of college financing will help families understand different student aid possibilities.
A multimedia presentation by Melissa Platt, WSU Vancouver financial aid coordinator, will take students through the process by learning how to find scholarships using the Internet and other resources, how to fill out applications and even how to successfully interview for scholarships.
"This is really a working session where people will be able to go step-by-step through the process" says Student Services Director Nancy Youlden, noting that although the workshop is presented by WSU Vancouver, students planning to attend any college will benefit from the session.
For more information on the event or college financial aid, contact the Office of Student Services at 360/546-9568.
