The Scholarship Workshop presentation and online classes offered through this web site are not only a tremendous learning experience but they are also an opportunity for students to win a scholarship sponsored by Marianne Ragins. All registered participants of The Scholarship Workshop presentation or an online class (includes teleseminars and web classes) are eligible to apply for The Ragins/Braswell National Scholarship (RBNS). The scholarship is available to students of all ages and backgrounds.
All applicants must have attended The Scholarship Workshop presentation or an online class about winning scholarships or financing higher education within the past year. To be eligible in any given year, you must have attended a workshop or class between April 30 of the previous year and April 30 of the current year.

If you attended a workshop in January 2018, you are eligible to apply for the scholarship in the year 2018 and your deadline will be April 30, 2019.
