Student Recipient of the Maggie Thompson Phipps Scholarship

WRITTEN BY: intern extraordinaire

Remembering a Beautiful Soul Maggie Thompson Phipps was a 2007 Nossi College of Art Photography graduate. In addition to her brilliant personality, Maggie was known by her special ability to capture a person’s essence through her photography. Unfortunately, Maggie passed away in 2016 after a hard-fought battle against brain cancer. Her family has set up an annual scholarship for Nossi Photography students all the way through 2022. A scholarship panel led by Tom Stanford, Nossi’s Photography Coordinator, with the help of Nossi’s Admissions team selected students to submit a photograph and a one-page essay about how they intend to change the world through their passion for photography. 2018 Scholarship Winner Tylor Hutcheson was selected as the recipient of the 2018/2019 scholarship, after submitting his endearing essay and photo. In the essay he writes on the passion he feels for photography, the desire to help others around him, & how being a student at Nossi College presented him with opportunities he didn’t think he had a shot at. Tylor states, “As I’ve gotten older I realize that even if you can’t see it, life works itself out. That doesn’t mean standing idly by, but it does mean that the right people and opportunities will come into your life at exactly the right moment. The way I see it now, if I can have a positive impact on just ten people while I’m at Nossi then all of this will have been worth it. I believe that through my passion for photography and…

Hi! I’m Jeffrey and I’m a senior at Austin Peay State University studying studio art and marketing. I’m currently the marketing intern for Nossi College of Art! So over the next couple of months, you’ll get a chance to read some of my blogs for this wonderful institution.     What you need to know about scholarships at Nossi! If you’re like me and 85% of other college students financial aid is key to attending college*. Learning about all the scholarships and how to apply can seem daunting, but don’t worry! I’ve made it easier for you. At Nossi, Financial Aid is available for those who qualify. Financial Aid programs include Federal Pell Grants, Direct Loan Programs, Social Security and United States Department of Veterans Affairs programs, Tennessee Student Assistant Awards and Federal Direct (Parent) PLUS loans. Even after reading this, you can get EVEN MORE help from our financial aid office site by scheduling a one on one meeting! Step 1: FAFSA The very first thing you have to do to receive any financial aid is to fill out a FAFSA. This is so both the government and the school know how much assistance you really need. It’s pretty easy to fill out. If you are a dependent of your parents you will need their tax information for the previous year (think their W2). You can access the FAFSA site here and when prompted, enter Nossi College’s code: 017347 After you submit the FAFSA, the school and the government will be notified…

Life After Service: Back to School Guide for Veterans

WRITTEN BY: intern extraordinaire

Exclusively written for nossi.edu by Allie Cooper After an honorable discharge, many veterans decide to go to college or university to complete their advanced education. Not all skills learned in the military are transferrable to a career, so getting a higher education can make you more competitive and desirable in the civilian job market. Nossi College has a variety of degree programs, which are perfectly suited for real-world experiences. Veterans face a variety of challenges during their educational pursuit after the military, like finding the right school and staying afloat financially, all while working towards a degree with career potential. However,, there are numerous options for financial assistance, from the Post 9/11 GI Bill, the Yellow Ribbon Program, and a variety of other grants and scholarships. In a higher education feature for military veterans, Accredited Schools Online claim that over 1 million veterans have taken advantage of the Post-911 GI Bill. The bill allows veterans to have anything from 40% to 100% of their school expenses paid. While it may be a daunting task to select an institution and a specific degree, keep in mind that a practical degree with hands-on training can be more advantageous than a theoretical degree. Therefore, a degree in art & design, photography or graphic design might be good choices for finding sought after careers. Military personnel have experience handling advanced technology, which can be a smooth transition to degree programs offered at Nossi College utilizing advanced tech and software.
