B. Debunking Athletic Scholarships and the Importance of Academic Scholarships: Who, What, Where, When, Why:

With our Partner Virtual College Counselors
When: Thursday, March 4, 4:30pm PST
DescriptionCollege is expensive. Across the globe, the cost of education is rising dramatically, and many families are being left behind. Now more than ever, a student and family's educational opportunities are defined by the financial aid they receive from colleges and universities. However, many families are overwhelmed by the purposefully convoluted process surrounding scholarships, grants, and student loans. 

Join us as we tackle the importance of academic and extracurricular scholarships: who should apply, what are these scholarships, where are they, when should you apply, and why are they so important in the long-term success of a student and family.

C. Prepping for A Showcase and The Future of Standardized Testing Post-Covid:

With our Partner Virtual College Counselors
When: Monday, March 15, 4:30pm PST
DescriptionFor decades, standardized testing (e.g. ACT & SAT) has been a crucial determining factor in admission offices admitting or denying students. Recently, the legacy of standardized testing has seen radical changes and the effects are causing ripples in the higher education world. More colleges and universities are going test-optional or test-blind with their admission processes. Earlier this year, the College Board even canceled the SAT subject tests and the optional essay portion. What will the role of testing be in a post-COVID higher education landscape, should you take the test, will this affect scholarships, and could we be seeing the final death throes of the standardized testing industry? Join us as we tackle all testing topics.

What you need to know before going to a showcase?  How to get seen?  What to say?  When to reach out?  Coaches have their schedules set before they show up to the fields.  Make sure you're on their list!
