National Scholarship Advising Network
The Academic Affairs Office has organized a network of advisors to help you understand the scope and scale of national scholarships, gain insight into applying for these scholarships and develop necessary skills to make you an excellent candidate for these scholarships.
This network will assist you with each unique aspect of the scholarship process. Collectively, our advisors assist in the form of workshops and online resources, direct students to necessary resources, mentor them through the application process, and provide feedback on written materials.
