High School Counselors: The Financial Aid and Scholarship Landscape for 2020

Recorded Thursday, April 30 at 07:00 PM

About this livestream

Description

Learn the latest trends in financial aid and scholarships so you can best advise your students and families.

The cost of college has tripled over the past 30 years even after adjusting for inflation. At the same time, colleges and universities now give out more than $200 billion of financial aid and scholarships each year. While these trends alone can make financial aid advising unclear, recent disruption due to the coronavirus has drastically changed the outlook on college tuition and financial aid.

On this event specifically for school counselors, our founder Vinay Bhaskara will provide an in-depth walkthrough of financial aid, scholarships, and other best practices for reducing the cost of college in a time when many families have been affected by the coronavirus. We'll also open up the floor for a Q&A session to answer any and all questions about financial aid, scholarships, and paying for college.
