Winslow High School (WHS) will sponsor an evening for students and their parents to learn about the college financial aid process Thursday from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. in the high school library.
Parents and students can find out about online financial aid resources and scholarship opportunities and learn the process for applying for federal aid via the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Colleges and universities use information from the FAFSA to put together financial aid packages for applicants. College financial aid packages are often a combination of grants, work study programs and loans.
This workshop will help to educate parents and students about these different types of aid available through FAFSA. It will also help parents prepare for the application process, which requires gathering income tax information, financial records and investment information.
Todd Wilcox, Northern Arizona University educational opportunity center representative, has extensive experience assisting students in completing the FAFSA and will conduct the training along with help from Winslow High School Counselors Cairsten Beanland, Meg Hughart and Renell Heister.
Light refreshments will be served. More information is available from the WHS Counseling Office at (928) 288-8282.
