Let's talk scholarships!
At the Summit 2022, we had a great opportunity to have scholarship-based discussions with peers all over the country. I've tagged scholarship professionals who attended this year.
Do you have any topics you'd love to continue to chat with your peers about? Please add some ideas in the comments, or continue on one of the topics from our session below, so we can keep the momentum going!

Here are some of the topics we covered in our Compass Live session at #FoundantSummit2022!
Financial need scholarship:
Talking with donors about requiring too much and it becomes a barrier of entry to application for students. How do balance verification and trust?
Do you allow applicants to defer their funds?
Orientation for students
Letters of recommendations
Using text messaging to remind them of things.
Do you do an alumni program?
Reverse scholarships more commonly called Place-based loan forgiveness programs. Scholarships that help pay back student loans bring students back to a geographical area.

Thank you @AlyseBraaten for all your help at the Summit. As a first-time attendee, I was impressed with the scope of the presentations and look forward to attending the next one!
Would love to hear more about the criteria others use for the selection of their need-based scholarships (specific formulas, etc.) Thanks!
I would love to hear more information on alumni programs??? Looking at starting one! Thank you in advance!
