Learning Opportunities for Educators
Scholarship Search Strategies
Once students decide to continue education beyond high school, they often turn their attention toward how to pay for that education. Recent statistics indicate that at least 8 out of 10 first-time, full-time students at 2- and 4-year institutions will receive some sort of financial aid. Join us for a free webinar on Scholarship Search Strategies where we will define key financial aid terms, delve into different sources for scholarships, and consider strategies that students can use to maximize the impact of their time spent applying for scholarships.
This webinar is brought to you by the Ayers Institute in partnership with the Tennessee College Access and Success Network along with guest expert Pat Cole, Scholarship Coordinator for the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.

Student Decision Making & College Access
As the school year begins and high school seniors begin transforming their college aspirations into reality, have you ever felt that your students were making short-sighted decisions about where to apply, procrastinating, or not thinking through other crucial steps along the way? Are you looking for strategies that can help build your students’ self-efficacy and motivation as they prepare to transition from high school to postsecondary? Join TCASN and the Ayers Institute for Teacher Learning & Innovation as we share behavioral research on how students process information and make decisions, ideas for how to support student decision-making, and strategies to help your students practice how to tackle the complex decisions they’ll need to make in college while they are still in high school.
This webinar is offered free of charge and is appropriate for high school educators and college access counselors.
