Date: Wednesday, February 8, 2017, 12pm-1pm MT
Presented by Colleen J. Quint, President & CEO at the Alfond Scholarship Foundation, Dr. William Elliott, Associate Professor at the University of Kansas, and Carl Rist, Director of Children's Savings and a Senior Advisor on Asset Building at CFED.
This webinar will share information and insights on the role that Children’s Savings Accounts could play in deepening the impact of your scholarship programs. Scholarship providers all want to help their students succeed, and research shows that CSA’s can be an important tool to complement scholarship programs and boost student outcomes. Whether you are looking to make a difference on a micro or a macro level, CSA’s can provide an innovative tool for raising expectations, facilitating access to higher education, and supporting low-income students through college completion. The webinar will provide contextual information on financial aid and asset-building, as well as new models from the field that integrate CSAs and scholarships.
