Unlock Your Future:  The Key to Scholarships Seminar

Date: Monday, October 28th, 2019

Time: 6:30pm

Place:  Handsworth

Admission: By optional donation

Join Brittany Palmer of Unlock your Future as she leads students and parents through a step-by-step program for navigating the scholarship process. Students in all grades and parents are welcome and encouraged to attend: it is never too early to get started. This comprehensive presentation covers topics ranging from building your scholarship foundation to crafting a strong personal statement. Contrary to popular belief, students do not need 95% averages or international achievements to win scholarships. Through this seminar, Brittany debunks common scholarship myths and breaks down the complex process into a manageable form. Using this program, Brittany and her younger brother Bo collectively won 35 scholarships totaling over $125,000. Since 2005, she has shared her story and strategies with tens of thousands of students, parents and educators. The Unlock your Future Scholarship Workbook ($25) and Scholarship Kit ($30), which are accompaniments to the program, will be available for purchase. Through this dynamic and informative presentation, Brittany demonstrates that scholarships are indeed possible.
