Title:

Designing Scholarships for Specific Student Population

Presenter:

Amy Ronnkvist, Director of Operations for Student Success Programs, Scholarship America

Cost:

Free to NSPA members. $35 for non-members.

Description: 

In 2019, the paths students are taking to pursue higher education are as diverse as the students taking them. Student populations demonstrate their strengths and preparation for education beyond high school in a myriad of ways. Data also shows that some student populations need more than financial support to be successful. All scholarship providers, regardless of size and service area, can play a key role in directing resources to help specific student populations who need them most.

This webinar will help providers define the goal of their program, find the student populations who are in greatest need, and get the latest research on how to smartly design a program that delivers desired outcomes. Examples will focus on two types of student populations: high need and first generation to attend college. Each of these populations demonstrates higher education readiness in varied ways and has different student support needs.
