February is College Financial Aid Awareness Month. There are a variety of financial aid opportunities and resources to help you access your college degree or skilled training, and in many cases, for FREE!
To qualify for most grants and scholarships, including the Grand Rapids Promise Zone Scholarship, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Therefore, Grand Rapids Community College Financial Aid Office will host a series of virtual FAFSA completion workshops throughout the month of February.
Remaining FAFSA Completion Workshop Dates:
- Saturday, February 27, 2021, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Sign up for a FAFSA completion workshop at grpromisezone.com/events.
