College & Scholarship Application Support

Get hands-on learning, planning help, and feedback on personal statements and college and university applications; assistance with portals; and prep for interviews: for U.S. and Canadian students.

  • Learn and practice strong argumentation strategies and clear essay construction
  • Develop a personal organizational plan to meet the guidelines of each application process
  • Practice for interviews
  • Get help with navigating the various online application portals.

In our “learn by doing” model, students identify how to clearly approach a topic, navigate argumentation strategies, and use best practices for clear written communication for all contexts, including effective use of examples, detail, outside research, and grammatical principles.

The resulting fluidity and comfort with articulating their ideas on the page will not only set them up for successful applications but set them apart from their peers at university and beyond.
