The Wayne State University School of Medicine’s Office of Scholarships and Financial Wellness, part of the Enrollment Management team, will host “Graduate to Freedom: How to Successfully Locate and Obtain Scholarships” at 5 p.m. Oct. 11 in person and online.
Food will be provided for in-person attendees, who will also be eligible to win several prizes.
The event is for current medical students who want to know about scholarship opportunities outside of the School of Medicine, as well as how to stand out in the scholarship application process.
The event will include a presentation by Angel Stallings, a Detroit native and debt-free first-generation college graduate. Although she initially took out loans, Stallings worked and won more than 30 scholarships that ranged from $500 to $42,000, totaling $100,000, and ended her educational journey without debt. Stallings will share her techniques on finding external scholarships, writing essays and scholarship information for international students.
