This year's @FAFSA is asking for 2019 tax information, but what should you do if your finances were significantly impacted by #COVID19 in 2020? Here's a snippet from one of the recent Excellence in #College Counseling webinars about #financialaid. #highered @ReachHigher

Sometimes our students don’t get accepted into the school that they thought was “the one” and that’s okay. Remind them that there’s always a place for them and their hard work has always been worth it. They are worth it.

"Through all the tragedy, people have come out of the woodwork with so any resources for students, for counselors, for everyone. There’s so much willingness to help and to empathize, it helps me remain optimistic." - @HarryNerenberg #EICC21

"I believe that the kids are going to be alright. To really see how they’ve defied all types of odds, and have done it so well, I feel like I can take a breath. It makes it easier to do what I do every day." - Farah Parker #EICC21

Farah's bright spot? "Our students are peer-reviewing, sending information, and encouraging each other in their respective COVID ‘pods’ in a way I haven’t seen before. One will ask for a meeting, and the next day I’ll have follow-ups from everyone else in their ‘pod.'" #EICC21

After 30 years of counseling, @HarryNerenberg says that while the profession has changed, students' motivation hasn't. "I don't send @CommonApp applications in the mail anymore, but the motivation, the hunger to succeed is still there. It always has been." #EICC21

"I miss the sounds of students in the hallway. It's so nice to witness your students' accomplishments, and have it *not* be through a screen. I have some high fives queued up for when we're out of this." - Farah Parker, #EICC21 @discoveryhsf

For @HarryNerenberg, searching for a bright spot amidst the last year means feeling inspired by his students. ➡️"I always knew they were tough and motivated, but their resilience this year has been astounding. Resilient in a way they've maybe never had to be before." #EICC21
