"I would recommend this online class because Marianne was able to cover many different topics from scholarships, application processes, community service, and recommendation letters. It was very helpful for my parents and I. I liked this class more than other virtual classes because there were times to work and times to listen. There was a little bit of break as well so that we could wrap our heads around everything we learned." Comment from high school sophomore in Virginia
This special BOOT CAMP will include:
- 3 hour online workshop (with breaks and fun activities) where Marianne will discuss:
- Over a dozen qualities/areas that scholarship programs and colleges look for when considering students for competitive scholarships and programs
- How to write an attention grabbing essay
- How to craft a compelling résumé to showcase skills, interests and talents
- How to find scholarships in every nook and cranny AND how to find scholarships specific to you, your situation, your family and your location
- Step by step directions for writing:
- A winning scholarship and college résumé (these are different than those for employment)
- A scholarship focused essay (this section will also include steps for answering the most frequently asked essay questions)
- If you hate writing, Marianne will help you get beyond the blank page. If you're good at writing, Marianne will give you tips to help your written words stand out from the crowd.
