The Scholarship Lady at Barnes & Noble on January 24th


Families that are concerned about paying for college are invited to Barnes & Noble in Mayfair Mall, in Wauwatosa, WI, on Saturday, January 24, 2009, at 1:00 p.m. for a workshop with scholarship expert and author Kim Stezala, a.k.a. The Scholarship Lady.

Ms. Stezala will conduct a free one-hour workshop, “Scholarships 101,” for college-bound students and their families. Attendees will gain street-smart advice on how to approach the scholarship process like a pro, learn the best scholarship tactics and review the six most common mistakes. Ms. Stezala is the owner of www.scholarshipstreet.com, and author of Scholarships 101: The Real-World Guide to Getting Cash for College (Amazon 2008).

Background:
According to the Project on Student Debt, Wisconsin ’s college graduates from Class of 2007 owed nearly $20,000, on average, in student loans. Scholarships are a source of money for college that does not have to be repaid but students must compete to win scholarships. The workshop will give students strategies for a competitive edge.

Ms. Stezala is a Milwaukee resident with a long career in helping students and families achieve their educational goals. She is currently a consultant to youth programs, community organizations, scholarship providers and other nonprofit organizations.
