Does your current grant and scholarship strategy include a portfolio of regular programs combined with various other opportunities linked to local congregations, specific ministerial programs, legacy populations, and other affinity groups? These programs help build and nurture relationships with key communities but add complexity – both for parents and students seeking to understand the aid process and for your own admission and aid teams communicating and executing those programs. This session will focus on an honest assessment of these “stackable” scholarship programs and finding a balance between community relationships, recruitment messaging, and enrollment and revenue goals.
