Inspired by the 2013 NSPA paper, “Impact of Award Displacement on Students and their Families: Recommendations for Colleges, Universities, Policymakers, and Scholarship Providers,” Maryland became the first state to introduce legislation that would restrict the practice of scholarship award displacement. Central Scholarship, a Maryland-based nonprofit that provides more than $1 million in annual scholarships and interest-free loans to financially needy students, played a key role in this effort. 

In this webinar, the presenters will tell the story of the bill, including lessons learned, and offer tips for scholarship providers who are interested in getting into advocacy. 

Michele joined the staff of Central Scholarship in February 2011, where her focus is on advocacy, strategic plan implementation, and College Cash® planning and curriculum development. Michele writes op-eds on higher education affordability issues, and presents for College Cash®. She earned a Master’s degree in Planning from the University of Virginia, a B.A. in Urban Studies from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a certificate in nonprofit governance from the University at Albany. 

Dana is a member of the Maryland House of Delegates, representing District 11, in Baltimore County. He chairs the education subcommittee of the Baltimore County delegation, and co-chairs the Maryland state Financial Education and Capability Commission. Dana is also Executive Director and Founder of Civic Works, a nationally recognized “urban Peace Corps” program in Baltimore City that transforms the lives of young adults through community service. Dana has a B.A. in government from Harvard College, a law degree from Columbia University Law School, and a Master’s in public affairs from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University.
