ACC HOLDS ASCENDER SCHOLARSHIP EVENT

By Carmen Hernandez


The ACC Ascender Scholarship Event was held on Friday, March 5th. Financial Aid Specialists, Belinda Peña and Rosario Potteiger opened the event with a presentation about the FASFA Financial Aid Application. Belinda briefly explained the differences between some Financial Aid basics based on grants, loans, work-study, and scholarships. She also offered assistance and resources for Financial Aid and money management concerns.

Then Belinda provided information about the ACC Foundation Scholarship and demonstrated the importance and benefits of applying for scholarships. While providing information about the ACC Scholarship, she opened an application and showed Ascender students how to properly apply and the eligibility criteria for applying to the general scholarship. Belinda also addressed individual scholarships available from various foundations and associations and the differences between them as well as how to be aware of scholarship scams.

Throughout the event, there was an open session for students to begin to apply for the ACC Foundation Scholarship and ask questions along the way. Belinda recommended that students speak with Rosario separately from the event in order to ask questions about the FASFA Application. Belinda also gave advice and resources on how to write an essay for the scholarship application process.

During this time, participants began to look through the scholarship application and asked many questions that concerned Financial Aid, essays, recommendation letters, and the general scholarships inquiries. Belinda concluded the event with some last-minute resources and thanked the participants for their support.
