STATEHOUSE (Oct. 21, 2020) — State Rep. Alan Morrison (R-Brazil) encourages Terre Haute South Vigo seniors and families to attend 1 of 2 workshops to learn more about financial aid options for students pursuing college.

According to Morrison, 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 determine the amount of aid. Both workshops will take place at Terre Haute South Vigo High School, with the first workshop beginning at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 28, and the second workshop beginning at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29. Morrison said families should bring tax and income documents of both the parents and students.

"Knowing what financial aid options are available and having the resources to help pay for college is important to families and students across Indiana," Morrison said. "INvestEd provides information on options and plans for paying for college, and I encourage anyone looking for help to attend this workshop."

At the first workshop, students and families can get assistance with the process of filing the FAFSA and can have any other financial aid questions answered as well. The second workshop will help students and families complete the FAFSA. INvestEd, an Indiana nonprofit, has been helping families for 40 years understand post-secondary education costs and 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.
