High school seniors from Richmond and their parents are encouraged to attend a Cash 4 College event this Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Richmond Civic Center, 450 Civic Center Plaza.
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., attending students will be aided in the effort to receive “as much financial aid as possible,” organizers say. They will receive assistance in filling out their Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FASFA) or California Dream Act application.
They will also receive help filling out their Richmond Promise College Scholarship application, which provides every high school senior from Richmond up to $1,500 annually to attend a two or four year college or university or a career technical education program.
Students and their parents should bring their social security numbers, if they have them, along with 2016 tax forms and W2s. See the flyer below for more information.
Students must fill out their FASFA or Dream Act application by March 2, which is the Cal Grant deadline. They must also submit their Richmond Promise application by March 10.
For more information, see our recent report on the application deadlines and eligibility.
