Parent and Family Book Club Scholarship 

 

We understand that purchasing the book The Stressed Years of Their Lives by B. Janet Hibbs & Anthony Rostain could present a financial barrier to your participation.  Because of that, The Office of First Year Experience and Parent and Family Programs want to provide books to those who need them.  This will be a need-based, first-come, first-served initiative.  You will receive direct outreach following your submission to confirm your book is being shipped out to you.  Thank you for your participation!
