---- — Funding For College: Your Questions Answered at Financial Aid Night

Danielle Downs, Financial Aid Counselor from Lake Land College, will be the guest presenter during Financial Aid Night at Shelbyville High School on Thursday, November 21, 2013.

This program, scheduled for college bound high school seniors and their parents, will be held in the Shelbyville High School cafeteria and will run from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Pre-registration is not necessary.

In addition to addressing various ways to fund a college education, Danielle will also address the “ins and outs” of completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Through completion of the FAFSA, students become eligible for state grants, federal aid such as Pell Grants and federal Work Study, as well as subsidized and unsubsidized student loans.

Although presented by a Lake Land Counselor, the information shared during the presentation will apply to students planning on attending any public or private university. There will also be a time for questions prior to the conclusion of program.
