STATEHOUSE (Nov. 6, 2020) – State Rep. Steve Davisson (R-Salem) encourages local high school seniors and families to attend 1 of 2 workshops to learn more about financial aid options for students pursuing college.

According to Davisson, 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 first workshop is 4-7 p.m. on Nov. 10 at Paoli High School, and the second workshop begins at 6 p.m. on Nov. 12 at West Washington High School in Campbellsburg. Davisson said families should bring tax and income documents of both the parents and students.

"Investing in education paves the way for good jobs and financial security," Davisson said. "These events are a helpful resource to families as students make important decisions about their studies and training after high school."

At both workshops, 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.
