Our quarterly Secure the Bag workshops with high school students focus on completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and securing additional scholarships and grants in pursuit of a post-secondary education.  Students discover how using their unique skills, interests and intended major can land them funding in a variety of areas.  We cover searching with intention on scholarship sites, how to secure recommendation letters, and developing a personal statement that stands out.
