If you would like help applying for financial aid to pay for college, the Scholarship Fund of Alexandria invites you to a FAFSA Completion Workshop at T.C. Williams High School, 3330 King St., Alexandria, on Tuesday, February 23rd. Drop by any time between 5 and 8pm for a free pizza dinner and confidential assistance from financial aid professionals. Free interpretation will be provided with registration (www.acps.k12.va.us/face-centers/).

Every senior should fill out the FAFSA to qualify for money from the federal government, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and colleges.  Filling out the FAFSA is free and takes less than 30 minutes. It does not include essays or consider students’ grades.  Please do not delay in filling out the FAFSA – many colleges award financial aid dollars first come, first served!
