STATEHOUSE (Nov. 9, 2020) – State Rep. Bruce Borders (R-Jasonville) encourages North Central High School seniors to attend a workshop on Wednesday, Nov. 18, to learn more about financial aid options for students pursuing college.

According to Borders, INvestEd is offering free guidance on completing and submitting the 2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid form. To be eligible for state and federal financial aid, students must fill out the FAFSA for universities and colleges to determine which students can receive assistance and the amount of aid. The workshop begins at 6 p.m. on Nov. 18, at North Central High School in Farmersburg. Borders said families should bring tax and income documents of both the parents and students.

"Deciding on a career path and the education or training involved is a big step for our young Hoosiers preparing to graduate high school," Borders said. "Workshops like the one at North Central can help students and parents understand their options for financial assistance and how to apply."

At the workshop, INvestEd counselors will discuss the FAFSA and various types of financial aid, and assist with FAFSA filing and submission. INvestEd, an Indiana nonprofit, has been helping families for 40 years understand post-secondary education costs and to find ways to pay for college.

Families anywhere in Indiana can speak to an INvestEd expert about questions they have while completing the FAFSA application by calling 317-715-9007. To learn more about INvestEd's work or access free resources and counseling, visit investedindiana.org/literacy.
