1. Dr. Owens,
    Thank you for sharing your story of ‘How You Found Your Dream College’! Thank you for being so transparent; your story is both informative and inspiration. I sincerely appreciate the social justice work you are doing to ensure that all students have equitable access to post-secondary education options and substantial support to successfully complete their academic program.

  2. Hi Dr. Owens, viewed your interview with Dr. Watkins and was very informative. It would be appreciated if you could conduct a workshop here in Miami, FL

  3. Please send me information regarding how to research for the right information. I’m looking to return to college for nursing but need assistance

  4. Dr. Owens

    I’m 42 years old I live in Madison Wisconsin I have a passion for community activism in public speaking and a dream of being a motivational speaker or life coach like Tony Robbins or Les Brown. I have some college under my belt as I’ve gone to Madison College and I’ve taken part in a project at the University Wisconsin call the odyssey project. I’m extremely active in my community and I’ve been invited to speak to some high school classes up some community programs and some groups in town that needed a speaker. So I just finished watching the YouTube video of you and Dr. Boyce Watkins and I want to go back to school and get my degree to get out here to motivate my people to do better. I’m originally from Chicago move to Madison and start a life here my children I hear pretty much my life is here but I want to do more so what do I need to do in order for me to find the right school and do it right because I have no problem with in class or online but my only problem right now is I started a business in November and it’s pretty much a four-time situation.

    Thank you,

  5. chool. Please advise.Hi Dr. Owens,
    I believe that I am interested in pursuing my graduate degree in business. I am currently deep in student loan debt from undergrad and am anxious to find out how I can find scholarships, grants, and/or fellowships for grad s

  6. Dr. Owens,

    My name is Markia Abdur-Rahman. I am so honored that I came across this knowledge via FB w/ Dr. Boyce Watkins. I am so tired of my people ( Black People) not putting priorities first! Thank you for starting your LLC. I am a mother of three daughters and I am here for the knowledge. I wish I could get you to Maryland so I could attend in person. I just wanted to say Thank You.

  7. Good afternoon! Ms. Abdur-Rahman, I totally agree. The colleges in this area are very expensive! I don’t like loans, therefore scholarships are the way to go. I find it very challenging to find the information I need to find out about scholarships, but have no issues with having information regarding loans. I also live in Maryland and would love to attend in person.

  8. I saw your interview on Dr. Boyce Watkins You Tube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9PvfQRpqNM and I am so ecstatic that you are doing this. I wished that it was available when I was younger because I was a part of that category that did not know the appropriate questions to ask and I believe that this program would have been pertinent to my educational goals. Nonetheless, this information is absolutely invaluable for not only people who are like me, but for people who have no one to ask. I am so appreciative of what your purpose and mission is, Dr. Owens, and for taking the time and effort to better our community.

  9. Hello Dr. Owens. I just heard you speak about scholarships on the Boyce Watkins talk show. Congratulations on getting the word out on his show. I was so excited to here you say there is money for college. My son just graduated from high school last month and is headed to college this Fall. We applied for so many scholarships we found through his school and community news but have not been very successful on getting many of these he applied for. So far, he has been awarded a total of $750 from two organizations. We are still looking for more scholarships for him to apply for over the summer. He’s written so many essays and sent transcripts, recommendation letters, etc. We are going to try to cover his tuition without loans. I’m still paying on my own student loans and I really don’t want him to be in this kind of debt. I need help on where to look for scholarships. We are a two-parent household with two working parents and my son didn’t qualify for any kind of grants. Not even a Pell Grant. Where should we look? There are so many sites that seem like scams out there. Any advice you have will be greatly appreciated. Do you offer a service to help find the scholarships? If I lived close by I would delve at your workshops but unfortunately, that’s not the case. How can we connect online?


  10. I am currently in school and my youngest daughter will be graduation in May. I am looking for scholarship information for both of us.

  11. Yes ma’am,

    I saw your interview with Mr. McCrary and I was very impressed with your knowledge concerning scholarships. I mentioned in that talk Rick James being from Buffalo. I hope you consider granting Boyce Watkins or Zaza Ali an interview. What grants could my 13 year old daughter apply for now? That is mind-blowing to be able to pull that off.
