GO ON IDAHO! STATEWIDE EFFORT TO HELP STUDENTS FIND FINANCIAL AID SET FOR SATURDAY
February 16, 2010
(Boise). Students who need help in finding financial aid for post secondary studies should plan on attending Go On, Idaho! FAFSA day, Saturday February 20, 2010. FAFSA or Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the portal through which most available help flows for students.
“They need to get their FAFSA filled out and now,” says Dana Kelly, Student Affairs Program Manager for the Idaho State Board of Education. “All of our state scholarships must have a completed FAFSA.”
The Go On Idaho! FAFSA Day will be held at more than 20 regional sites simultaneously throughout the state.
High school guidance counselors, college and university financial aid directors from both public and private institutions, various education stakeholders along with staff from the Office of the State Board of Education have worked together to make this event a reality.
“It’s about the students and their future,” said State Board of Education President Paul C. Agidius of Moscow. “Whether that future is in the world of professional-technical education, one of our community colleges or pursuing a degree at one of the state’s 4-year institutions; these students need help to go on and that help starts with finding financial aid,” said Agidius.
Go On Idaho! FAFSA Day runs from 10:00am-2:00pm local time at each of the locations.
