Cash for College workshop

Belmont Cash for College
Originally uploaded by CD-13
This morning, my office hosted a Cash for College workshop at Belmont High. More than 50 high school seniors brought their parents to get one-on-one assistance with filling out the state and federal forms that make them eligible to receive financial aid for college. As a bonus, students who participate in Cash for College workshops become eligible to win a $1,000 scholarship through the program.

A college education is the key to a better future, but figuring out how to pay for that education can be daunting. Cash for College helps students and their families take the steps they need to overcome these hurdles and open the door to a college education.
