Davis High School seniors and their parents are invited to attend the high school’s annual Financial Aid Workshop at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29, at the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS, 315 W. 14th St.
The purpose of the workshop is to help students and parents understand the college financial aid process, learn about the many sources of financial aid and provide instructions for completing financial aid applications.
Topics will include:
* Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA): This is the application used to determine a student’s eligibility for federal and state aid. Colleges also use the FAFSA to award grants, scholarships, work-study and loan programs. The FAFSA must be filed between Jan. 1 and March 2. Students can apply online at www.fafsa.gov.
* Cal Grants: The state of California offers financial aid in the form of Cal Grants for students planning to attend a California college. Every high school senior who has at least a 2.0 grade-point average, meets income and residency requirements, and applies on time is guaranteed a Cal Grant. Students must submit the FAFSA and a verified GPA to be eligible.
