Terri Sewell to host first Virtual Grants Workshop for scholarships and higher education


Tuesday night Congresswoman Terri Sewell will host her first-ever virtual grants Workshop for Scholarships and Higher Education at 6:30 p.m.

Each year, Rep. Sewell hosts a series of grants workshops to assist local officials and organizations in accessing funding available to them. On Tuesday night, Sewell will bring together officials from local colleges and universities and the U.S. Department of Education with the goal of helping students and families better understand the financial resources available to pursue higher education.

“My Virtual Grants Workshop for Scholarships and Higher Education goes LIVE tomorrow, Sept. 20, at 6:30 pm CT!” Rep. Sewell said on Facebook Monday. “If you and your family would like to learn about the financial assistance available to pursue a higher education, I encourage you to tune in right here on my Facebook page.” 

The workshop will feature guests from institutions of higher education in Alabama’s Seventh Congressional District as well as the U.S. Department of Education.

Sewell will be joined by:

·       Dr. Jarralynne Agee, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs at Miles College

·       Dr. Glenn King, Jr., Director of Community Relations at Wallace Community College Selma

·       B. Marie Jones, Director of Minority Outreach at Wallace Community College Selma

·       Lauren Tancock, Associate Director for Undergraduate Scholarships at the University of Alabama at Birmingham

·       Isaiah Ellis, Outreach Specialist for the U.S. Department of Education, Federal Student Aid Division

The workshop will be streamed live on Sewell’s official Facebook and YouTube pages.

Since her election in 2010, Sewell has worked to secure hundreds of millions of dollars in funding for Alabama’s colleges and universities to help students afford higher education and keep them on track to graduate.

Sewell helped secure nearly $800 million for Alabama’s colleges and universities in the controversial American Rescue Plan. Half of that money is being used to provide direct financial relief to students. Sewell said that she is committed to making sure that every student has the resources to achieve their God-given potential.
