District Writing Workshop #2

February 18, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Scholarship application season is upon us! The Office of School Counseling and Postsecondary Advising of Chicago Public Schools will offer a series of Writing Workshops to support strategic scholarship applicants. It is important to support eligible students who are in need of scholarship funds. The second District Writing Workshop will take place in February! Due to space limitations, we are only able to host the first 80 – 100 students who register to attend. Review details below.

Students who are eligible to attend this workshop must be eligible to apply for scholarships (preferably students with a GPA of 3.0+ weighted or unweighted.)

The goal of the District Writing Workshop(s) is to provide eligible scholarship applicants with :

– Writing support to increase their ability of submitting quality essays

– Guidance on applying to scholarship opportunities on Academic Works**

– Scholarship application completion

– Information on upcoming scholarship deadlines

**Note: Applications are being updated in Academic Works and will be available for students to apply during the workshop.
