Scholarship Seminar

Copyright 2018. Unlock your Future. All rights reserved.

The scholarship process can be overwhelming at first. Through private consultations, Brittany provides students with personalized guidance to help ease that stress. During the two hour consultation, Brittany guides the student(s) through each step of the Unlock your Future program. This includes creating an Activities and Accomplishments list, navigating online resources and building a scholarship essay outline. The session also includes a UYF Scholarship Kit with a package of relevant scholarship applications for the student. Students leave with the start of a strong foundation, a personalized Scholarship Kit and a jump start on the scholarship process. Brittany helps students recognize what makes them shine as scholarship candidates and provides them with the tools to take action.

Brittany has been touring the seminar for over a decade. From small workshops to full auditoriums, Brittany has presented to audiences of all sizes and is comfortable in any setting. Her expertise is matched by her energy. Brittany is known as an engaging and dynamic presenter who captures and maintains her audience's interest while simplifying the complex process of applying for scholarships.
