In the academic year 2013-2014 an estimated $2.9 billion in Pell Grant money was left unclaimed simply because so many eligible students across the country didn’t fill out their FAFSA. There are several ways to get help to pay for college but many students get lost in the complication of the forms or simply don’t know where to start when it comes to searching for scholarship opportunities.
As staff prepare to graduate yet another cohort of exceptional students, Esperanza College is also preparing to host a Scholarships & Financial Aid Night for prospective students. Monday, December 14 at 5:00 PM, find out how you can pay for college!
The following workshops will be offered every 30 minutes from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
- The Esperanza College Grant & Institutional Aid
- Practical ways to search for scholarships
- Tips for writing effective essays for scholarships and colleges
