Scholarship, Summer Program, & Contest Curation

Scholarships, summer programs, and contests can be fantastic additions to your resumé. However, finding these opportunities - and identifying which ones offer you the greatest odds - can be a challenging and time-consuming task. Our curation service enables you to meet with an opportunity research expert who will get to know you, your activities, your achievements, and your stories through a one-hour live session. Following this conversation and a review of your resumé and transcript, we will provide a fully-customized list of opportunities (national and local, large- and small-scale) that align with your unique profile and that offer you the best chance of success. The final curated list will include recommended approaches and strategies for each application. 

This service is available at a rate of $200. Please complete our inquiry form to learn more or sign up.
