As a first time attendee, my number one take-away from this event was coming to a better understanding of the scholarship industry as a whole. By hearing about my colleagues’ challenges, processes, and ideas for best practices through our sessions and meaningful breakout sessions, I feel that I came away from the conference with a much better grasp on the my role in this community as a financial aid scholarship advisor. I was amazed by the sense of community of this group – everyone was friendly, inviting, and open to sharing about their experiences in the field. From sessions, to break out groups, and even at meal times – everyone seemed excited to talk about scholarships and their roles. I’ve truly never had a better opportunity to network, and I love that NSPA intentionally designed the conference to provide many opportunities to get to know fellow attendees!
