Financial Aid Nights 2019

Financial Aid Nights 2019
Posted on 10/09/2019

The School District of Lee County, with the help of a local financial aid expert, is hosting several Financial Aid Nights October 15th through the 24th. Each session starts at 6:00pm in the host school’s auditorium and is intended for high school juniors and seniors and their parents.

Families in attendance will learn about the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form and steps they need to take to help their children receive financial aid from postsecondary institutions (colleges, community colleges, high tech centers, etc.)

Mathew Sanchez, the Director of Student Financial Aid at Florida SouthWestern College will lead the discussion about the definition of financial aid, how to apply, deadlines, step-by-step instructions for completing the FAFSA, Bright Futures, state aid versus federal aid and more.

At least one Financial Aid night is planned for each zone, but students and parents are invited to come to the one most convenient to them. The financial aid process can be very intimidating, and these workshops demystify the procedure and help families feel more comfortable in going through the steps.

For many students, the dream of continuing their education past high school would not be possible if not for financial aid. These events will demonstrate the numerous ways students can get the financial help they need to make their college or university dreams a reality.
