The Westport Library and Staples Guidance Department encourage you to attend a webinar with expert college planning and financial aid consultant Bill Smith, Understanding College Financial Aid and Paying For College. The presentation will take place on Thursday, January 28 from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
This is a Virtual Event. Please register here.
Distinct from our fall financial aid night for seniors focused on the filing of FAFSA applications, in this program Mr. Smith will discuss assessing potential eligibility for need- and merit-based aid, how to identify colleges that might meet need and offer merit aid, and creating a plan to pay for college.
While it may seem early for some, we are mindful of the complexities of the college search process when finances are a consideration as well as the need for students and families to have realistic college conversations based on accurate information. This program will be geared toward all 9th-11th grade students and families, including those in the early stages of the college exploration process, at varying levels of need.
