MAKE THEM SAY WOW: Write Brilliant Scholarship Application Essays
This session is for students ages 12–26, and their parents.
Imagine your child applying for 10 scholarships every single year, starting in 8th grade and going all the way through grad school. 80+ scholarships altogether.
Wow! That would be amazing! But who wants to write 80 scholarship application essays? Not your kid, that’s for sure.
Here’s the brilliant solution.
Your child writes one stunning scholarship application essay, and then modifies it and uses it over and over again to apply for 100 different scholarships. You make sure this is such a brilliant essay that it gets your kid money—even if he or she has lower grades and test scores.
This 3-hour class will teach you and your child exactly how to write such an essay. Together, you’ll learn to:
- Throw the old “introduction—body—conclusion” essay structure out the window. That’s an informative essay structure that doesn’t work for persuasion.
- Use the same principles of argument that lawyers use when arguing cases in court. (Be sure you know all three component parts of logical argument before you try this.)
- Use vividly written stories to capture attention and create powerful emotional pull. Begin to see potential in your child’s own life stories, the ones that in the past you only viewed as run-of-the-mill and ordinary.
- Equip yourself with a new, clever, multi-layered organizational structure that makes room for all of your child’s accomplishments without ever sounding scattered, disorganized, or disjointed.
Other students have called this class “amazing” and “revolutionary.” This class is also suitable for applicants to law, medical, business, and grad school.
This scholarship essay writing session will be presented live by Jeannie Burlowski, author of the book LAUNCH: How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt-Free and Into Jobs They Love Afterward.

Will this session be offered in our area at any other time?
No. Jeannie is from Minneapolis, so this opportunity to hear her live in Massachusetts and Rhode Island is a rare one.
Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?
All ages are welcome to attend, but Jeannie’s sessions are most highly recommended for students ages 12–26 and their parents. It is highly recommended (but not required) that students ages 12–26 and both their parents attend together.
My kids are still in middle school. Isn’t it too early for us to be thinking about college?
Did you know that students can start applying for college scholarships as early as 8th grade? Help your son or daughter to develop one amazing essay, and then watch him or her use it over and over again to apply for scholarships throughout middle school, high school, and college.
We have 10 children. Do we all need tickets?
Each attendee needs a ticket. The first ticket purchased by your family is $59.00. Each additional attendee from your same immediate family pays only $25.00. It is highly recommended (but not required) that students ages 12–26 attend this session with both parents.
Foster children count as being from your same immediate family.
We’d like to bring a friend of the family along. Can he or she get in for just $25.00 as one of our family members?
Since this friend is not a member of your immediate family, he or she would attend at the $59.00 ticket level.
We don’t homeschool. Are we still welcome to attend these sessions?
All are welcome. Jeannie Burlowski’s sessions are for all parents and students—public, private, and homeschooled.
What’s the refund policy?
Refunds are allowed up until 24 hours before the event.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
It’s helpful if you can print it and bring it, but if you forget it, you can get in by showing picture ID.
Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
Yes. If you can’t use it, you may sell or give it to a friend.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn’t match the person who attends?
Yes. Completely OK.
