Need help navigating the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as a foster youth or emancipated minor? Napa Valley College in partnership with V.O.I.C.E.S.-Napa and First Place for Youth-Solano County will offer a two-part workshop for foster youth, former foster youth and emancipated youth who will attend college during the 2012-2013 academic year.
Dates are Feb. 14 from 4 to 6 p.m. and Feb. 21 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Napa Valley College McCarthy Library, 2nd floor-Rm. 1772.
“Join us for food, prizes and the 411 on how to get money, support and information needed to get into college during this 2-part presentation,” said Bob Lortz of the NVC Financial Aid office. During this workshop youth will complete and submit the FAFSA, CHAFEE Grant and CAL Grant applications. Pizza will be served at the end of each of the workshops (students need to attend both days to complete all applications). Students that attend both days of the workshop series will also receive a school back-pack stuffed with school supplies, and will also be entered into a drawing to win a $1,000 scholarship provided by the California Cash for College program and a laptop computer offered by Travis Credit Union.
