WINSLOW, Ariz. - Winslow High School (WHS) will put on an evening for students and their parents to learn about the college financial aid process Dec. 2 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the high school library. Parents and students can get information 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 FAFSA to put together financial aid packages for their applicants. College financial aid packages are often a combination of grants, work student programs and loans. This workshop will help to educate parents and students about these different types of aid available through FAFSA, and will also help parents prepare for the application process, which requires gathering income tax information, financial records, investment information and more.
College financial aid counselors who have extensive experience in assisting students in completing FAFSA will conduct the training, along with help from Winslow High School counselors Cessie Lenz, Sarah Wilson and Renell Heister.
The evening is a way for parents and students to learn helpful tips and insights to make the process easier.
A drawing for a family season pass for basketball and wrestling, valued at $175, will also take place at the event.
More information is available from the WHS counseling office at (928) 288-8282.
