Financial Aid Seminar Set At TTU

Putnam County high school seniors and parents can learn about applying and paying for college by attending College Goal Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. Feb. 14 at Tennessee Tech University. During the free session, financial aid experts will guide students and parents through the completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Volunteers will explain the FAFSA line by line and give one-on-one information, as well as host question and answer sessions addressing other financial aid issues. The free workshop will enable students to complete applications for several awards: the Tennessee HOPE lottery scholarships, federal Pell and supplemental grants, federal work study awards, federal loan programs, TTU need-based scholarships and State of Tennessee need-based grants. Tennessee Tech will have a dedicated computer lab set up so that participants can finalize the application process before leaving the workshop. For more information, call 372-3073.
