Scholarship Mom Tip #179: Get Advice from an Expert


Yesterday on our #CampusChat Twitter chat, we welcomed Jodi Okun, author of her new book “Secrets of a Financial Aid Pro” (found on Amazon here). If you have college financial aid questions, Jodi has all the answers and the best advice! She is a mom who understands the daunting and often feared task of filling out college financial aid forms to try and get the most financial aid possible for students.

As I read her new book, I was delighted to see that so much of what Jodi teaches aligns greatly with my beliefs about college scholarship prep and getting students in a favorable position when it comes time to apply for scholarships. If you have a college-bound student, or even one currently in college, you NEED this book. Don’t sit back and hope for the best when it comes to financial aid. Do what you can NOW and increase your chances of acquiring more financial aid when the time is right for your student.
