TREASURE COAST -- Cash for College at Indian River State College is a one-day event to help new and returning students obtain financial aid for college. The event will be held on Saturday, March 15 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at all IRSC campuses and the IRSC Blackburn Educational Building in Fort Pierce.
The event is designed to help college-bound individuals of any age with the financial aid application process. Those attending the event will get no-cost professional assistance completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The FAFSA is required for any student seeking federal and state financial aid, including grants and loans. Attendees should bring their 2013 tax return and W-2 forms. Dependent students must also bring parents' tax and W-2 forms.
IRSC students are awarded over $40 million in financial aid, including grants and scholarships, each year. "Don't let financial concerns stop you from obtaining a college education," said Mary Lewis, Director of Financial Aid at IRSC. "We are ready to assist you with the financial aid process and encourage anyone interested in continuing their education to attend Cash for College."
