Michele Delhaye and Rye Davis of the Vermont Student Assistance Corp., will address some of the key issues surrounding funding higher education: What are the resources, application process, and scholarships available for potential college and postsecondary students?

How can we best help scholarship recipients be successful in college and manage their financial debt?


The presentation will be of interest to parents, grandparents, women thinking of going back to college and others concerned about the financing of higher education and the debts it can carry beyond graduation.
