Hartnell Hosts Cash for College Workshop

February 6th, 2008

On Saturday, February 9, Hartnell College will hold a workshop for current and potential college students and their families who are interested in applying for financial aid. High school seniors interested in enrolling at any college are encouraged to attend.

This Cash for College Workshop will help students and parents complete all the forms that are required to apply for federal and state financial aid, including the 2008-09 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form, and the CalGrants application, which may provide up to $8,000 in state aid.

Financial aid staff will be available for one-on-one assistance in both English and Spanish, beginning at 10 a.m. in the dining room commons on the college’s main campus at 411 Central Avenue in Salinas. The event ends at 2 p.m.

The deadline for applying for a CalGrant scholarship is March 2.

Participants should bring their 2007 tax return information, W-2’s, or income statements. Workshop participants will be entered in a drawing for a $1,000 scholarship.
