The Oregon Promise Grant
Now is the time to complete your FAFSA if you have not already done so. FAFSA can provide additional money for a community college, trade school or university. Students without a social security number can also apply for additional money using ORSAA. Visit OSAC to help determine which one to complete. All students who complete their FAFSA or ORSAA in February will receive a gift card to a local business too ! We will be providing 'help' sessions for students to work on their FAFSA or ORSAA in the coming weeks and we will have a parent 'help' event the evening of Feb. 15. More information to follow. If you have any questions, please email your students counselor.
