A meeting of great minds.
Wednesday, May 15, 2019 | Willard InterContinental Hotel | Washington, DC
Students today are not the same as students of the past. We need to make sure we are changing too – adjusting and supporting the needs of all students. At the second annual Scholarship America Partner Summit, great minds will come together for a day of discussing challenges and identifying solutions.
The Partner Summit is an opportunity to work collaboratively to incorporate social, cultural and financial supports into existing scholarship programs. You’ll hear from students about what they need and the challenges they face; from the nation’s most respected and exceptional scholarship programs; and scholarship alumni who will voice the impact of investing in social, cultural and financial supports on their lives. The learning doesn’t stop there, however. Our goal is to create a Community of Practice that will continue virtually on a quarterly basis.

Partner Summit Sessions
We're working on developing a thoughtful, impactful program for the Partner Summit, and we are pleased to announce the following confirmed sessions:
- Student Panel: Cultural, Financial and Social Support - Facilitated by Scholarship America Product Manager Amy Ronnkvist, this panel will feature students from all walks of life discussing the importance of support systems beyond the scholarship check.
- How It's Done: In-Depth Program Studies - Presenters from nationally regarded scholarship providers will give voice to best practices used in their exceptional programs .
- Where Are They Now: Alumni Look Back - A conversation among scholarship program alumni about vital supports and lessons learned.
A Community of Practice
The Partner Summit is the beginning of a lot of great conversations -- and we will be inviting attendees to keep the discussion going throughout 2019. Scholarship America invites all attendees to join our Community of Practice: a quarterly virtual symposium that will stay in touch and work toward the goals we identify together. This is a unique opportunity to bring together a variety of perspectives, and we hope you'll be as excited as we are to keep the conversation moving forward in support of students.
