As a Bovard Scholar you will:
Learn how to attend top-tier schools
We’ll walk you through each question of a college application and let you know what admissions committees are indirectly asking. When a college application asks for your “possible career or professional plans,” what should you say? Why do they want to know if English is not your first language? When they ask for optional information regarding “special circumstances and additional qualifications,” should you respond — and what would be an appropriate answer? We’ll help you showcase your personal achievements in a way that optimizes your strengths and resonates with the selection committee.
You will also learn how to attend top-tier schools for free or a fraction of the price. Just like shopping for a car, you shouldn’t expect to pay the sticker price to attend a prestigious college. We’ll help you navigate the scholarship and financial aid process and make sure you understand how to fill out those complicated forms.
