Do you need help paying for college? There are thousands of dollars available in scholarships and grants, the key is a powerful essay supporting your need for assistance.
Betsyann Wilson, executive director of NPC Friends and Family, will be offering a free essay and scholarship search workshop on Friday, March 1, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., utilizing Northland Pioneer College’s interactive instructional network to reach out to all nine communities served by the college. The workshop will be in Connected Classroom 1, and is open to current NPC students, high school seniors and their parents. To find an NPC location nearest you, visit www.npc.edu/locations, for addresses, phone numbers and interactive map to the campus or center.
“I’ll be sharing what judges look for in a scholarship application, and how to best ‘sell’ yourself as the most deserving person for the award,” explains Wilson. “There are literally thousands of companies and organizations offering scholarships to help you pay for your education. I’ll show you how to find ones in your area of interest, and which ones to avoid, such as those requiring you to pay a fee to submit your application.”
Wilson will also be explaining the scholarships funded through her nonprofit organization for the fall semester and those offered by NPC for new and continuing students. She will also guide students through www.npc.edu/scholarships – a search engine with over 300 scholarships and expanding every day.
