The Half-Million Dollar Baby

A number of you have asked how Elizabeth managed to win over half a million dollars in scholarship offers as a home-schooled high schooler. The short answer is that 1) we prayed, 2) she treated scholarship pursuit as a part-time job during her senior year, 3) we had been aiming her at a number of high-profile scholarships over her 4 years, so that by her senior year, she was competitive for large number of lesser scholarships as well, 4) we used the services of Jeannette Webb at Aiming Higher Consultants to make our documentation as professional and easily accessible to scholarship committees as possible.

Most of our journey is reproducible. I have developed a one-day workshop about positioning your student and pursuing scholarships, called Launch to College Workshop. I am now making the full-text syllabus for the workshop available to order. The workshop DVD set will be coming out in the next month or so.

Over the next few days, I'll be giving you a preview of the workshop contents. Stay tuned!
