online event; open to all woman-identifying, trans, or gender expansive members of the public, mentors, mentees, and alum

Applying for college can be stressful. There’s the apprehensive deciding of which schools to apply for, the anxious workshopping of personal statements, the uneasy nabbing of top-notch recommendations, and the list doesn’t stop there; what about funding?

Through the winning tag team of writer Ana Homayoun and educator Tom Rabbitt, participants in this workshop will learn the tips and tricks they need to stare down each of the “scaries” lurking in the college (and post-graduate!) application process—from creating a list of top choices to winning the scholarship of your dreams. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A and are encouraged to send questions in advance. Join us as we discuss everything you’ve always wanted to know about college apps…but were too afraid to ask.

This event is designed for all mentees, mentors, program alum and invited guests.
