MAP-Works Scholarship

The MAP-Works (Making Achievement Possible) Scholarship was created to give students the opportunity to share how MAP-Works impacted their college experience. The purpose of the scholarship essay is simple: to gain a better understanding of how students are using MAP-Works to learn about themselves, how they are applying feedback from their student reports to change their behaviors, and how interactions with Direct-Connect faculty/staff are improving their college experiences.
