For students and parents, this time of year can be stressful as you think of ways to pay for college and what financial aid resources are available. At Central Scholarship we offer a free informational seminar called College Cash. The seminar is focused on college affordability and financial aid. College Cash helps not only Maryland students but aims to help educate parents about the financial aid process.
According to Sallie Mae COVID-19 hasn’t stopped students from moving forward with higher education but fewer families are completing the FAFSA which means money and resources are being overlooked. We understand finding financial aid can be intimidating but with our free seminar, students, and their families will learn how to navigate the process smoother by:
- Learning how to maximize federal financial aid
- Understanding student loans
- Standing out from the crowd through a scholarship essay
- Avoiding scholarship award displacement
For students who have not completed their FAFSA but want to continue their higher-level education, submissions, and financial aid decisions are made on a continuous rolling basis. So, it’s not too late to apply.
For students and parents interested in College Cash, the 2021 seminar dates will be posted soon and in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are happy to discuss virtual options as well. Please contact Michele Waxman Johnson, Vice President at 410-415-5558 or send Michele an email to schedule a session.
