Financial Aid Nights 2018

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

To assist students and families, Lee County Public Schools, with the help of a local financial aid expert, will be hosting several Financial Aid Nights. The events will be held in the school’s auditorium and will run from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Those attending the meetings 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.) College financial aid experts will cover the definition of financial aid, how to apply, deadlines, step-by-step instructions for completing the FAFSA, Bright Futures and state aid versus federal aid and more. Matthew Sanchez, the Director of Student Financial Aid at Florida SouthWestern State College will lead the discussion.

A Financial Aid night is planned for students in 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.
