Missouri college financial aid workshops set

Friday, February 10, 2012 | 9:35 a.m. CST

COLUMBIA — High school seniors looking for help with federal financial aid applications can attend a series of free workshops across Missouri beginning this weekend.

Filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid is a rite of passage for most college-bound students. The free workshops, known as FAFSA Frenzy, begin this week in advance of a Feb. 15 priority application deadline.

Thirty-six workshops are scheduled throughout the state Sunday, a day dubbed College Goal Sunday by sponsors including the Missouri Department of Higher Education. A list of times, dates and locations can be found online.

Participating students will be eligible for a raffle drawing of eight scholarships worth $500 apiece, pending fall enrollment in a Missouri postsecondary school.
