ACC HOLDS SCHOLARSHIP SESSIONS FOR ASCENDER STUDENTS
by Maria Gonzalez
A scholarship session was held in every Austin Community College Ascender government and history class, both virtual and in-person, to support Ascender students in accomplishing their academic objectives and earning degrees. These sessions were led by Belinda Peña, who provided guidance on the different financial options ACC has available including grants, loans, Federal Student Aid, and scholarships, as well as options open to non-citizens or non-residents of Texas.
During the sessions, students were able to easily navigate the pages and mark important dates and deadlines in their calendars. Students could see the process of filling out the ACC General Scholarship application. Right before the session came to end, Belinda encouraged everyone to make use of the supplementary resources offered by ACC, such as coaching for scholarship essay writing, to enhance their prospects of success.
