Prize and Free Money: Returning Student Scholarship Workshop!

Did you know that Castleton awards thousands of dollars in scholarships each year? If you’re a good student with financial need, chances are you qualify for one or more returning student scholarships. Unfortunately, relatively few students take the time to apply. That’s why the Academic Support Center is teaming up with the McNair Scholars Program to offer a Returning Student Scholarships workshop on Thursday, February 9th from 12:30-1:30pm in the Academic Support Center in Babcock. During this session, we’ll walk you through the Returning Student Scholarship Application process. You’ll come away with all the information you need to apply before the March 10th deadline. While you’re here, claim a door prize, enter our prize drawing, and enjoy some snacks. Can’t make the workshop...
