Financial Aid and Scholarships 101
6:00-6:45 PM CT
This session will take a common sense, easy to understand look at college financial aid and scholarships. This will include providing a clear overview of the application and eligibility process, the types of aid students may receive, understanding award notices, and options for covering any remaining balance after grants and scholarships. We’ll concentrate on eliminating the jargon that can confuse the process and focus on common sense goals like finishing in 4 years and understanding student loans by looking at how the borrowing process works. We’ll also take a moment to discuss the impact of a pandemic on families and financial aid eligibility. The ultimate goal is to eliminate the apprehension and fear often associated with the financial aid process.

Join us for an informative session led by industry and career counseling experts who will provide specific steps and resources to help high school students increase their self-awareness, explore careers and even gain career experience before graduation.
