Financial Aid Awareness Month

February is Financial Aid Awareness Month. It’s never too early to discuss financial aid with students. Even as young as elementary school, the conversation about financial literacy can occur, even if it’s about saving birthday money for postsecondary expenses. Here is a link to activities that can be done in preparation for college in middle school.
