Reminder that students must apply for financial aid in order to be eligible for L.A.
WHAT: Through its L.A. Cash for College initiative, the Los Angeles Area
Chamber of Commerce will host its Super Saturday event Dec. 2, with 15 free,
college financial aid workshops organized throughout the City. Students and
families who attend the workshops will receive assistance with completing the
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), California Dream Act, and
Chafee Grant applications. Each year participants access an average of $35
million in aid.
With the launch of the popular Los Angeles College Promise (The Promise) last
year, filling out financial aid forms becomes even more critical since students
must apply for financial aid for Promise eligibility. The Promise provides one year
of free community college enrollment at nine Los Angeles Community College
District campuses to all full-time students graduating from Los Angeles Unified
School District (LAUSD) and charter high schools beginning with seniors
graduating in 2017. The Promise is a partnership among Los Angeles Community
College District, LAUSD, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, L.A. Area Chamber of
Commerce, UNITE-LA and private philanthropy.
Cash for College is part of the Chamber’s and its affiliate, UNITE-LA’s, body of
work, College Ready L.A., that ensures collaboration in assisting all L.A. area
students be prepared, be able to access and be able to complete college.
