Financial aid professionals from around Montana will gather at 18 locations on Sunday, Jan. 31 and Wednesday, Feb. 3 to provide free, one-on-one assistance to students and families completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The FAFSA is the key to obtaining federal financial aid — and some state and institutional aid — to help pay for postsecondary education.
This year, the event will take place locally at Dawson Community College in room 147. Sessions take place at 1:00, 2:00, or 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 31.
In addition to filling out the FAFSA, College Goal Sunday attendees may register to win one, $500 scholarship to be used at the school of their choice.
This marks the sixth year that nonprofit Student Assistance Foundation (SAF) has coordinated College Goal Sunday in Montana, serving more than 6,000 students and families in that time.
College Goal Sunday is a national program that was originally created by the Indiana Student Financial Aid Association with funding from Lilly Endowment, Inc. and with supplemental support from Lumina Foundation for Education.
