Many families are counting on scholarships to lower their college costs, and odds are your family is among them. You hear rumors that millions of dollars in scholarship funding goes unclaimed every year, but is that really the case? If so, where do you find these millions of dollars? If you’ve had these questions and are wondering how to maximize your chances of scholarship success, tune into the free webinar, “Successful Scholarship Strategies,” offered by our test prep partner, Revolution Prep. In the program, College Coach’s Shannon Vasconcelos, former financial aid officer at Boston University and Tufts University, teaches you about the two main types of scholarships—merit scholarships from colleges and private scholarships from outside organizations—and discusses how to design a college list to maximize your chances of winning merit scholarships, how to approach the private scholarship search efficiently, and how to fit scholarships into your overall college financing plan.
