Students To Learn How To Write College, Scholarship Essays

Sept. 28, 2010 – A well-written scholarship application or successful essay can be the difference between high school students earning a scholarship or not. Unfortunately, most students either do not know how to start an essay or what to include in them.

Spring Creek Parkway, in Plano.

This workshop will cover helpful tips and strategies of writing an effective application or scholarship essay from Marilyn Kaufman, M.Ed., a top college consultant in the field of higher education.

This practical seminar will provide the tools for helping students to know the most significant factors in revealing who they are through their writing.
