“FAFSA and Scholarships” will be presented Wednesday, February 18, 5:30–6:30 p.m., in Mann Assembly Room, 103 Paterno Library.
Get help unraveling the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in this workshop, part of the Money Counts: a Financial Literacy Series, a collaborative effort of the Penn State Commission for Adult Learners and the University Libraries.
Each year, students and parents complete the FAFSA to be considered for financial aid from the federal government, and in most instances, additional money from the state in which they reside and the college they want to attend. That’s why the Free Application for Federal Student Aid is so important—it is the gateway to three potentially big sources of financial aid from federal, state, and college entities. If you don’t complete a FAFSA, you could be missing out on a lot of financial aid, including potential scholarships. In this workshop, Penn State Financial Literacy Manager, Dr. Daad Rizk will help students review the Financial Aid Process, understand the FAFSA application and explore options to find scholarships to finance education.
