Successful Scholarship Searches and Applications (online)
with Nikki Vachon
Scholarships can go a long way in helping students cover college costs, but being successful in the scholarship application process can take some work. In this session you’ll learn to build and work on your own scholarship application plan. You’ll also learn about and try out different scholarship websites, learn how to best use a scholarship information tracker, and learn to avoid some of the challenges of the scholarship process. Students and parents interested in learning about the scholarship process can join Nikki Vachon, College Access Counselor with the Finance Authority of Maine for this 1 hour workshop as we talk about scholarships. This workshop is offered by FAME in partnership with adult education programs across Aroostook, Hancock, Penobscot and Washington Counties. This is live online using ZOOM.
Nikki Vachon, College Access Counselor at FAME will be sharing information about programs that student loan borrowers might want to take advantage of. She has worked in the financial aid field for over 26 years and is passionate about sharing information and helping students and borrowers. She welcomes interaction and questions in classes and will end the session with helping attendees get started on their scholarship search.
