Using Scholarships Strategically
"Colleges use scholarships to meet institutional goals, but they have to pick their priorities," Beckie Supiano writes for the Chronicle of Higher Education's Head Count blog. "In a guest post today, Chio Flores shares some thoughts on the strategic use of scholarships. Ms. Flores, director of financial aid at Washington State University, was scheduled to present on this topic at a session of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators annual meeting on Sunday. 'Most financial-aid administrators would agree that institutional priorities drive scholarship awarding. However, the strategic use of scholarships is often multidimensional and complex. Our schools’ missions, wealth, size, and location are all factors that impact how we administer scholarships.'"
