There are tons of amazing resources out there that’s sole purpose is to help us assist our students. At ASPIRE we have a ton of resources here that are both digital and hard copy. Hopefully, all of you have already received those publications, but if you have not here is the link to where you can order them.
There are also several other sites and organizations that we partner with that offer amazing materials that you might want to hand out to your kids. The following list includes all of those organizations and a brief synopsis of how they might be helpful.
1.) FAFSA Publications: This is where you can find all things Financial Aid and FAFSA. This stuff is nice because it not only comes straight from the FAFSA website, but it also gives you an option to access them electronically. (The electronic versions can be found at THIS link.)
2.) ECMC Publications: The ECMC Opportunities booklet contains information to help high school students prepare for postsecondary education, choose a college, and apply for financial aid. Opportunities also covers financial aid issues such as filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), as well as types and sources of federal and state aid, and eligibility criteria.
3.) The Ford Family Foundation Publications: The Ford Family Foundation is a private, non-profit foundation located in Roseburg, Oregon.
