Webinar: Meet in the Middle to Magnify Success: Early Distribution Scholarships and CSAs

Oct 21, 2016

October 21, 2016, 2:00-3:00 p.m. EDT 

Research on strategies to increase college enrollment and completion, especially for low- to moderate-income students, is showing the effects of earlier awareness and engagement with scholarship opportunities. At the same time, CSAs are showing measurable effects on development of essential social and emotional skills for very young children, as well as on academic success. Effects are greater for lower-income children. 

Benita Melton, Education Program Director of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, moderated presentations by Martha Kanter, Executive Director of the College Promise Campaign and former U.S. Under Secretary of Education, and Patty Grant, Executive Director, Community Foundation of Wabash County. 

The panelists offered an in-depth discussion of how joining earlier distribution of scholarships with CSAs can strengthen each strategy by building on their strengths while addressing inherent challenges of each alone.
