Eastern Promise to Host Scholarship and FAFSA Fairs
The Eastern Promise will host three college scholarship and FAFSA fairs for six local school districts in January.
During the fairs, high school students will have an opportunity to receive help with filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In addition, 9th-11th graders can make their plans to earn college credits in high school with a trained volunteer. Eastern Promise college credits cost $10 a credit.
The fair will also feature a flu shot and immunization clinic for those 11 years and older in anticipation of Exclusion Day on Feb. 18. Insurance can be billed for these immunizations. In addition, free child care will be available, and those who attend the fair will receive free pizza. Bilingual helpers will be available to assist those who need it, and there will be a scholarship drawing and door prizes for high school students who attend.
