Student Success and Financial Aid teamed up at RSC on February 13to relay scholarship information to students for the 2013 school year. 25 students gathered around the speaker in the Tinker Terrace Room receiving flyers, a detailed power point presentation and a chance to win an iPad.

The workshop gave information about different scholarship opportunities here on campus, scholarship search websites, along with Ticket to Rose info and tips for writing a scholarship essay.

 

Robin Gamill, the Ticket to Rose advisement assistant said, “The application numbers for Ticket to Rose is up to 100 already and we normally receive 400 to 500 applicants.”

 

The Ticket to Rose numbers are up for the month of February and are continuing to increase. Ticket to Rose in 2012 opened up to home school kids, private schools and alternative school kids, which increased the numbers as well.

 

If you were not able to attend the workshop the student success center has some information on scholarships or you can visit UCanGo2.org on the web
