A few weeks ago the Office of Financial Aid at Michigan State University was approached by U.S. News & World Report’s Web Producer for Education who was organizing a Twitter chat to talk about college scholarship tips. We were happy to volunteer and share advice with students, high school counselors and others following the chat.
On February 19th we joined U.S. News Education, Scholarship America, FastWeb, and The College Board using the #ScholarshipChat hashtag to discuss questions ranging from “What advice do you have for students just beginning the scholarship search process?” to “How can winning scholarship money affect a student’s financial aid eligibility”. There were a lot of great responses from many participants. If you are looking for scholarship application tips to add to your outreach materials view the chat below.
