Coffee Talk: Fall Scholarship Communication

Listen to this Scholarship Coffee Talk where we will discussed how you are getting the word out about your scholarships. 

  • Do you need the general community to better understand how you serve the community? 
  • Do you need applicants, evaluation committee members or new donors?
  • How do students learn about your scholarship offerings?
  • Do you solicit your community for new evaluators to participate? How do you find new evaluation committee members?
  • What information is important to communicate to your donors at the start of your scholarship season?

We encourage you to continue the conversation from this session on Compass - A Foundant Community.
