A Scholarship Workshop Program to Improve Underrepresented Student Access to Higher Education
Murr, Christopher D.
Journal of Student Financial Aid, v40 n2 p31-38 2010
This study examines the effectiveness of a scholarship workshop program to better prepare low socio-economic and minority students to compete for collegiate scholarships. The study involves 1,367 high risk 9th to 12th grade students in Texas. Analysis of the pre- and post tests, using a t-test for dependent variables, indicates a statistically significant improvement in the relevant knowledge of workshop participants. As evidenced by this analysis and other data, the workshop program is very successful in educating high risk students about the steps necessary to develop a competitive scholarship application that can increase their chances of accessing a higher education.
