Meet Kathy Bialk, FAAC®. Kathy got her start in financial aid after a short stint as a residence life director, which helped her find an open position in a financial aid office. "After graduating from college and then taking a year to study abroad in Poland, I came back to my alma mater [Alliance College] and worked as a residence life director and financial aid officer position opened about a year later," Kathy said. Learn more about Kathy, her interests, and her career path.

This interactive webinar, on Wednesday January 18 at 2 p.m. ET, will focus on the two pending U.S. Supreme Court cases — SFFA v. Harvard and SFFA vs. UNC — which challenge the legitimacy of race-conscious admission policies and seek to overturn decades of federal court precedent. While most of the attention in those cases centers on issues of admission policy and practice, important issues in those cases may bear on the continuing role of race and ethnicity in the awarding of financial aid and scholarships. This webinar will distill the legal issues of consequence for aid and scholarship practitioners, offer insights regarding court decision-readiness strategies and steps to consider, and virtually engage with attendees to address their questions.
