Graduate students have successfully navigated the college process- TWICE! They have a great baseline of knowledge on the college application and scholarship process that would be helpful to any number of students. With their personal knowledge and basic online coaching that can be developed through webinars or other available resources (like NACAC, etc), these graduate students would be supported in supporting student post secondary success at local high schools while at the same time making their own graduate education more affordable. It is a win-win!
With the help of graduate school coaches, high school students have another person to turn to who has navigated the process before them and has experience with the writing, editing, and brainstorming needed to apply for many scholarships.
