Web-Based Class - The Scholarship Class for High School Students & Their Parents
The web-based class adds the extra element of being able to follow along in the class by viewing actual examples such as web sites, scholarship search engines, essay writing samples, winning application packages, local scholarship research techniques, recommendations, and much more. For nearly 20 years, much of this information has been taught by Marianne Ragins, $400,000 scholarship winner, to students and parents throughout the country in the popular and highly informative 3-hour interactive Scholarship Workshop presentation. The web-based class uses the telephone and the course materials. You must also have a computer and Internet access to join. It is a 90-minute class that allows you to see and interactively participate in the class. If you are interested in attending The Scholarship Workshop presentation but do not live in an area where a presentation is currently being held with a live audience, then you should attend attend a teleclass or web based class. Your attendance in this course will qualify you for the Ragins/Braswell National Scholarship.
During The Scholarship Class for High School Students & Their Parents, we will discuss:
- Invaluable resources for uncovering scholarship opportunities
- Easy-to-follow guidelines for writing winning, personal essays with actual examples from Ragins' scholarship quest
- Helpful tips on using the Internet to research scholarship sources
- An inside look at how to get the best recommendations
- Useful tips for standing out in a crowd of scholarship applicants
For this class all participants must be able to call a long distance number at the appointed time. When placing this call you will be charged long distance rates by your long distance carrier. The Scholarship Workshop has no involvement with the rates you will be charged for this call.
For the web-based class you must also have a computer with an Internet connection (at least a 56K modem, cable modem, DSL, or High Speed Internet Broadband Access), Internet Explorer or another compatible browser, and Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Special Note for WEB-BASED CLASS - If you have a 56K modem only and DO NOT have a cable modem, DSL, or Broadband access to the Internet, you MUST have two phone lines (one for accessing the Internet and viewing the presentation using your 56K modem, and one for calling in to listen to the instructor, Marianne Ragins). We recommend high speed Internet access.
All registered participants will receive the number to call and further instructions with the course materials package.
Course materials and the telephone number to call in for the class and/or the web-based class site address will be sent approximately one week before the scheduled class time.
This class is open to U. S. based high school students and their parents only.
You must give a valid e-mail address when registering for a class. It will be used for sending class instructions and announcements.
