UTSA partners with area universities, colleges for scholarship workshop
(Sept. 30, 2010)--The UTSA Office of Financial Aid and Enrollment Services in partnership with Alamo Colleges, Trinity University, University of the Incarnate Word and Texas A&M University will host a scholarship workshop for students and parents from 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Oct. 2 in the Frio Street Building Sam Riklin Auditorium (1.406) at the UTSA Downtown Campus. Free and open to the public, the "Simply Scholarships" event will include workshops on scholarship essays and applying for financial aid.
The workshop topics include a hands-on scholarship "Essay Writing Tips" session. Students will leave with a scholarship application-ready essay and information from each participating institution on the scholarship application process. Parents and other relatives accompanying the potential students can attend financial aid sessions in English and Spanish.
"The goal is to teach students and their families how to maximize award packages by applying for scholarships and other forms of aid as early as possible," said Christopher Goldsberry, UTSA financial aid outreach specialist.
Because the workshop includes private and public universities and community colleges, students have the opportunity to determine the type of institution that fits them best.
"Every year, nationwide, millions of scholarship dollars go unapplied for," said Goldsberry. "We encourage students and parents to apply for this financial support that is available. Last year, the total institutional and private donor scholarships awarded for UTSA was more than $14 million."
