In an earlier post, I shared that I am going to conduct scholarship search workshops. After contacting a few organizations that specialize in college resources and workshops, I was advised to conduct workshops on writing essays for scholarships. That sounded good until I started reading a few scholarship books and realized how much learning I had to do.
In order to share accurate information and resources, scholarship workshops will not begin in September UNLESS you have the knowledge and resources to educate young people. If you do, let’s chat so we can get that going. Otherwise, I will let you know when I’ll start the workshops.
In the meantime, if you know of any scholarship search resources or train-the-trainer workshops, please let me know.
I’m looking for organizations that conduct scholarship workshops so I can start helping in the community. If the organization is not in Chicago, please send me the name and contact information, and I’ll reach out.
Thanks so much.
Seeking Scholarships and Grants for Education
In these days of financial challenges, there are still many people who desire higher education, and I would like to help provide resources for them. If you don’t already know, I HIGHLY value education and would like to make it easier for others by sharing scholarship and grant opportunities for them to go.
Here’s the thing. I will seek out and share resources, but the students have to do the work. Most scholarships require essays, and many people miss out because they don’t want to write them. This is one of the worst reasons to miss opportunities. Especially free money.
And I need help. I can’t do this alone. Let me know which books and other resources you use to find scholarships and grants for education, and I’ll do the same. All of the resources will be posted here on Shorty. Also, be sure to make sure these are legitimate resources before sharing. I have been receiving a listing of scholarships for the past few years, yet no one can tell me if they are legit. Lastly, I”m willing to conduct essay writing workshops for scholarships with advanced notice and planning.
Education Scholarships and Grants
Here’s a resource to get get you started – your local library. I’ve already checked mine and will be visiting soon to review the books I found online to see if they provide good information and resources.
So, are you in with me? Can I count on you to be an ambassador by researching and sharing books and resources on scholarships and grants?
We are always talking about our future, but we somehow fail our future we we fail to do what we can to make sure they are prepared for the future. Since I cannot be all things to all teens, the least I can do is try to help boost their education and employment opportunities. Thus, if you learn of any job or scholarship information or any other educational opportunities please post them in the comment section below or on our South Side Shorty Facebook Page.
