GAINESVILLE, FL. (EEF News) – The Education Equalizer Foundation is proud to present an additional scholarship workshop on Tuesday, February 28 at 7:00p EST featuring Nasseeka Denis, EEF Program Manager. “I am so glad that I attended the scholarship session at Aces in Motion with Nasseeka; I felt more prepared to complete my scholarship applications,” said a student during an anonymous survey.
During the working session, we will continue working on the following, a resume that details their academic achievement, extra-curricular activities, and community involvement; strategize how to ask for recommendation letters from their teachers, guidance counselors, coaches, and employers; and draft sample responses to multiple generic scholarship essay prompts to use for applications.
We will also complete at least one scholarship application together. “I appreciate how honest Nasseeka was as she described the consequences of not applying for scholarships. I wish an organization like EEF existed like this for my older child,” said a parent. Students are encouraged to bring scholarship awards that they need help completing and can anticipate working on new scholarship applications.
Arriving on time is strongly suggested by The Education Equalizer Foundation as we will assist high school seniors with preparing to apply for their college scholarship applications.
