6 Ways Money Mentors Can Help You
By Amanda Draper, National Content and Social Media Director at NextGenVest
Money Mentors are predominantly first-generation college students who have applied for financial aid themselves, and have passed a rigorous financial aid and student loan training certification. NextGenVest Money Mentors are powered by smart technology which allows them to effectively and efficiently counsel students for free over text message! They are available to help students 24/7 over text message.
1. RESEARCHING COLLEGES
Money Mentors can help you with researching colleges, because NextGenVest’s smart technology allows them to find colleges that might be a good fit for you academically and financially. Once they curate a list of colleges that may be a good fit for you, they can share this list with you.
2. RESEARCHING SCHOLARSHIPS
Money Mentors are powered by NextGenVest’s smart technology which can search over 40,000 possible college scholarship opportunities and provide you with a short list of curated scholarship recommendations.
3. BUDGETING FOR COLLEGE
Money Mentors can help you budget for college, by helping you create a budget and pick cost effective meal plans.
4. DEADLINE REMINDERS
NextGenVest’s smart technology allows Money Mentors to send deadline reminders over text for the national deadlines to register to take the SAT and ACT, for completing and submitting the FASFA and CSS Profile, as well as national Early Action and Early Decision admissions deadlines.
5. APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID AND NEGOTIATING FINANCIAL AID PACKAGES
Money Mentors are trained to answer your financial aid questions, and can help you complete the FASFA . Once you have received a financial aid award letter Money Mentors can answer questions about your award letter and help you write letters to appeal your financial aid package and help you negotiate so you can receive more financial aid. And Money Mentors can even come see you in person to host free financial aid workshops at your school! You can reserve a workshop here.
