"Financial Aid Awareness Week" in Indiana

Just in time for College Goal Sunday in Indiana, Governor Mike Pence has proclaimed February 15-21, 2015 as “Financial Aid Awareness Week”! The announcement talks about the importance of post-secondary education, and the role an organization like ISFAA can play in helping students achieve that education.

Financial Aid can often be the difference in a student being able to attend college, and was one of the many reasons College Goal Sunday was created. College Goal Sunday began right here in Indiana 26 years ago, and has now spread all across the country.

For information on the location most convenient for anyone who wishes to attend the FREE event on February 22nd from 2 to 4 pm, go to: 2015 Indiana College Goal Sunday Locations.
