MARKHAM, Ontario - May 25, 2022 - PRLog -- BridgesEDU Scholarships will embark on a collaboration with Markham Public Library this month.

BridgesEDU Scholarships' founder, Christopher Grafos, Ph.D., will be speaking about myths that hinder student success in postsecondary school. Dr. Grafos will be drawing on his extensive experience in academia to offer insights that can help students achieve academic success in university. Chief among these myths is that scholarships are only for A+ students.

BridgesEDU Scholarships offers a free scholarship finder and other paid support services that help high school and undergraduates win scholarship money.

"Our mission is to empower students with the tools that they need to succeed," says Grafos. "So much of academic success occurs outside of the classroom and finances are a big part of this equation."

"Students often think that they need to be perfect in order to win a scholarship, but this simply isn't true," Dr. Grafos adds. "There are many different types of scholarships out there that virtually any student can compete for."

Dr. Grafos describes the collaboration with Markham Public Library as one that will help a community of students "learn where to find scholarship opportunities and how to win those prizes."  He also notes that students will get much more from the presentation: "We'll also cover some significant changes between high school and university while noting strategies for students to navigate them successfully."

Thursday's presentation is entitled, "5 Myths that Hinder Post-Secondary Success".

"It's a great opportunity to share the many lessons I have learned while teaching undergraduates," says Grafos. "I especially look forward to speaking about the questions students and parents have."

The presentation is part of a long relationship between BridgesEDU and Markham Public Library, which first began in 2017.

"Hundreds of Markham students have attended my presentations at the library," Grafos says. "Through delivering dozens of lectures, I really feel like we've had a positive impact on the lives of many students. It's something I'm very proud of."
