This is a practical, hands-on workshop. The first part of the online session is instruction and the second part is putting it into practice. You may also add an essay review (please see below).
Participants will learn tips, techniques, and strategies of how to write a winning scholarship essay. As students learn, they will put the learning into practice by writing a practice essay in the workshop.
Note: you don’t need to have a scholarship application in hand to get great value from this workshop. Many scholarship essays are based on one of several themes, so Janet will provide students with a list of themes they can choose from to write their practice essay. Students can then use the information from the practice essay on future applications.
