Financial Aid & FAFSA Workshop
for Foster Parents and Youth in Care
September 26, 2017, 7:00-8:30pm
DCFS Offices at 6201 S. Emerald
Youth, foster parents, caseworkers, mentors, and anyone invested in the lives of foster care youth are invited to join Foster Progress to walk through the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
We’ll provide snacks and expertise to ensure you get all the financial aid that is available to you for college. Students who plan to attend college in the 2018-2019 school year MUST fill out the FAFSA to get financial aid.
We’ll also show you the next steps for applying for Youth in College, Youth in Scholarship (the DCFS Scholarship), the Education and Training Voucher, and more scholarships and grants available to youth in care.
