• Public Workshops and Direct Counseling

    The staff of MindWorksusa has delivered hundreds of free public workshops at high schools and other venues from coast to coast that deal with the best ways to pay for college, line-by-line completion of required financial aid forms and approaches to choosing colleges and the admissions process. In addition, the company provides a limited number of individual family counseling services on these matters.

  • Designing more Effective Scholarship Models

    MindWorksusa has been called upon to assist agencies that grant scholarships on designs that will maximize the impact of those scholarships for worthy students and their families at all incomes and backgrounds.

  • Rebuilding the Financial Aid System

    MindWorksusa has worked with government agencies at all levels to help them design more efficient and effective programs relating to increasing access to and completion of higher education. Our company has an ongoing concern about how the financial aid system designed in 1965 is fatally flawed and how to create a better model that is designed to be more constructively integrated in the nation’s larger economy.
