Cash For College Workshops
No one should be priced out of higher education. Take advantage of your financial options today. California’s Cal Grant program ensures that if a student qualifies to attend college, the state will make sure they can attend.
Unfortunately, many are not aware of this program. With nearly 400,000 California high school seniors this year, students and families should be aware of Cal Grants as an option for financial aid to low- and middle-income students to pay for college. Cal Grants provide financial assistance to students, and because they are grants, they do not have to be paid back. They are available to California resident students who wish to attend two-or-four-year colleges or are pursuing technical education and can be used to cover fees, tuition and living expenses.
In collaboration with Cal-SOAP, I am hosting free financial aid workshops at six different schools around the district from now through January to help you and your family get started. We’ll have experts there to answer your questions and even assist you with your application!
You and your family may attend any of the Cash for College workshops, regardless of where your child attends high school.
Please call my district office at (916) 324-4676 if you have any questions.
