Invite: Cash for College Workshops

Oct 11, 2018
Ami's Updates

Meeting with U.C. Davis graduate students in my Washington, D.C. office.

Hard working Americans should have a fair shot at the American dream. But today, the rising cost of college is making that dream harder and harder to achieve.

That’s why my office is partnering with the Sacramento CAL-SOAP Consortium to hold Cash for College Workshops this fall. Families can get free, in-person help from trained volunteers on  financial aid opportunities and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Learn more below about upcoming workshops in our congressional district in October, the documents you should bring, and how to RSVP. If you have any questions, please feel free to call my office at (916) 635-0505, or you can click here to learn more at the Sacramento County Office of Education.
