Scholarships can be one of the most important and influential ways to recruit top graduate students, but many GEM professionals are afraid to admit they don’t know much about how the work! How should a school award merit scholarships? What’s the difference between a “normal” scholarship and an “endowed” scholarship? What’s my “discount rate” and how does it relate to my “net revenue”? How can an institutional leverage merit scholarship aid towards graduate enrollment goals? These questions and much, much more will be covered in this “crash course” in scholarships for GEM professionals. This session is appropriate for new professionals or those with years of experience who could use more perspective on merit scholarships.

This session will be presented by Jennifer Kulbeck, Assistant Dean of Liberal Arts at Saint Mary's College of California, and Dr. Raymond Lutzky, Senior Director of Enrollment and Admissions at Cornell Tech.
