Financial aid guides specifically for women

Posted on behalf of Open Education Database

The American Association for University Women recently reported that 53% of women have high student loan debt just one year after graduation, compared to 39% of men. Many women also face the added difficulties of trying to go to college for the first time later in life, returning to school after long gaps of time, and attaining a degree while being a single parent.

To help make college more accessible for them, our college planning experts at OEDB.org developed two holistic financial aid guides specifically for women. It breaks down available grants, scholarships, and fellowships, along with useful tips and tricks.

Women and single mothers are encouraged to apply, including bilingual women. 

Please contact Charlotte if you have any questions about these financial aid guides or any of our other college planning resources!

Professional development — Teaching for Biliteracy, Strengthening Bridges Between Languages

In this three-day professional development institute, Cheryl Urow will introduce the powerful notion of the Bridge to teachers, administrators, and leadership teams from dual language programs. The Bridge is the instructional movement when teachers bring the two languages together, strategical guiding bilingual learners to transform academic content they have learned in one language to the other, engage in contrastive analysis, develop academic English and Spanish across content areas, read and write grade-level tests across the curriculum, and develop metalinguistic awareness. This third consecutive event is an opportunity for schools and districts to continue building their capacity by sending coaches and teachers who have not yet had this particular training experience.

Institute includes breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack.
