Central Scholarship Program Manager Jennifer Bauer offered free scholarship advice to students and parents last week at Congressman Cummings‘ 17th annual How to Pay for College Seminar. The event brought together college-bound high school seniors, parents, and current college students with financial aid and higher education experts to provide information about opportunities and financial assistance programs that give current and perspective students the ability to attain a college education. In addition to Jennifer, others on the education expert panel included Dr. James Copeland (U.S. Department of Education), Benee Edwards (MHEC), April Bell (College Board), Troy Quinn (Morgan State University) and Julie Knox-Brown (Howard Community College).
We are gearing up to offer another free student event in January – our annual College Cash seminar. Mark your calendar for this free event taking place in two locations this year. On January 28, 2013, join us at the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore City to hear about how to find a scholarship and tips for applying. On January 30, 2013, Central Scholarship will be offering the same free seminar at the Howard County General Hospital Wellness Center. Our scholarship and financial aid experts will present and be on hand to answer questions for students and parents. Stay tuned for event registration information next week.
