This week you’ll find information on free financial aid seminars for college bound students, some fun family outdoor workshops, spring break vacation savings and more. Enjoy!

Free financial aid seminars

The Financial Aid Saturdays Program provides FREE assistance to Central Texas high school seniors, prospective/current college students, and parents/guardians needing help to complete federal and state financial aid applications to fund college enrollment. The program is put on by the Austin Chamber. The goal is to increase direct-to-college enrollment from 61 percent in 2010 to 70 percent by 2015 to ensure our region is able to meet future talent demands. There are several more free Saturdays coming up – here’s the list.
