This student won Hope Scholarship Georgia State University  

This student won over 200,000 to

Bard College. 

What was your experience in this process?
My experience during this process was that of self-reflection and success. Before SOAR, I never spent much time thinking about who I really was and who I wanted to become. I wish I had been more intuitive to myself before the program, it would have made answering the essay question easier. The questions and essays assigned required me to deeply think about my passions and future goals. Having this experience has given me the tips and tools necessary to effectively apply for scholarships.

What did you like about the SOAR program?
The SOAR program taught me how to construct an essay that I could be proud of and send to a scholarship program without a second thought. I also became much more aware of my time management skills.  This program was very informative and well organized. 

Would you refer anyone to these services and why?
I would absolutely refer someone to these services because there are no risks and plenty of benefits. Giving someone who wants to better themselves through college the tools and tricks necessary to receive financial aid seems like a human responsibility.
