The Linfield Adult Degree Program is offering a Free Path to Scholarships Webinar on November 3rd. The workshop is intended to teach students how to successfully apply for scholarships and increase the likelihood of winning of scholarship toward earning a degree. The webinar and the portfolio that students use to successfully apply for scholarships are both completely free for students who register in advance by October 30th. Advanced registration is required in order to mail the webinar materials, the “College Edition Path to Scholarships Career, College, and Scholarship Planning Portfolio”, co-authored by Gerardo Ochoa, the webinar instructor.
During the webinar, Gerardo teaches students how to write a winning scholarship essay, request the best recommendation letters, conduct personalized scholarship searches, as well as give feedback to strengthen individual scholarship essays. Following the webinar, Gerardo will continue to be available to coach students and share sources of scholarships through his extensive network of contacts.
In addition to the free webinar and student portfolio, Linfield’s Adult Degree Program will also award a $500 scholarship during the webinar to one lucky student who is registered in advance and is present in the online webinar at the time of the drawing. The scholarship is good for spring semester 2013 in the Adult Degree Program.
While the federal government makes low interest loans available, many students are finding that the loans do not cover the entire cost of their education when taking into consideration tuition, online fees, and books.
