AUGUSTA â€“ Senators Plowman, Thomas, and Farnham announced today that the Finance Authority of Maine (FAME) will offer the 8th annual College Goal Maine around the state on various dates and locations during January and early February of 2011.
College Goal Maine, formerly known as College Goal Sunday, brings together financial aid professionals from Maine colleges and universities, along with other volunteers, to help college-bound students and their families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. This form is required for any student seeking federal and state financial aid, including grants and loans at all colleges in the country.
Deadlines for filing the FAFSA form vary from school to school, and students should carefully consult the deadlines of every school to which they are applying. FAME encourages all students to complete the FAFSA form as soon as possible; ideally, all students should complete the FAFSA sometime during the month of January. Free online forms and more information are available at www.fafsa.gov or http://www.collegegoalsundaymaine.com/index.php.
The senators would like to encourage all college-bound residents and their families in to visit a workshop. The following are locally scheduled events, atÂ Â 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13 at Dexter High School and 6: p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 18 at Katahdin High School and at 2 p.m.Sunday, Jan. 30 at Husson University.
