- Get Involved
The Earl Woods Scholarship Program also provides two-to-three interactive learning and engagement opportunities for the scholars annually. Because the issues facing a freshman differ greatly from those a senior might experience, our workshops are developed and delivered according to the year each scholar is in college. This allows for an intentional focus on the skills that need to be built upon each year of university life.
The intended outcomes are:
- To establish a community, build relationships and reinforce the support structure of the Earl Woods Scholarship Program.
- To provide the scholars with guidance, support and practical tools to succeed.
- To provide networking and learning opportunities between mentors and scholars.
- To create a dynamic team-building opportunity among the scholars and the Foundation staff.
- To build a strong alumni network.
Below is a sampling of past workshop presentations that have been offered to the Scholars:
- 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Rob Collins)
- Business Etiquette (Carolee Ogata)
- Financial Management (Larry Reed)
- Toastmasters Public Speaking (Kandarp Shah, Lamar Blackwell, Lawrence Cole, Kate Rynerson)
- Interview Skills (Jolie Armitage)
- Resume & Cover Letter (Elaine Lipiz)
- Personal Statement (Jesus Montoya)
- Campus Resources, Time Management and Health & Wellness (Jessica Butler)
- Graduation School Preparation (Mike Mastagni)
- Internship & Career Preparation (Karina Hamilton)
- Franklin Covey Leadership (Eric Stenlake)
The workshop program is one additional avenue to reach the Earl Woods Scholars by exposing them to internship and career preparation, leadership and team-building, graduate school and the importance of financial management. By hosting successful individuals and allowing them to present on their field of expertise and facilitate workshops, the scholars are introduced to future opportunities and discover a world of possibilities.
