Scholarship Plus & The Chronicle for Higher Education "The Covid Crisis: Helping First-Gen Men"

Scholarship Plus is honored to have been invited by industry standard The Chronicle for Higher Education to participate in a virtual panel , January 27 at 2 p.m. ET. Our Director of Scholar Success, Shari Simon, will be addressing why fewer men of color are going to college, particularly those from low-income backgrounds. 

Panel Description: In the next installment of our series “What It Really Takes to Be a Student-Centric Institution”, experts on access and enrollment will discuss how to support male students and answer your questions:

  • Why are fewer men going to college?
  • How can colleges solve the challenges of this population through new and innovative ways?
  • How may these solutions help other student groups on campus as well?
