COLLEGE FUNDING PROJECT
Paying for College Presentation
This workshop provides an overview of the many options available to families to
pay for college. The goal is to inform students and parents about government grants, scholarships, loans, FAFSA application procedures and additional services and programs provided by $tand by Me. Time: 30-90 minutes (depends on audience and presentation).

FAFSA Completion Workshop
This is a “hands-on” workshop that will provide students and their families with actual, real-time assistance in completing the FAFSA. $tand By Me staff and trained volunteers will provide one-on-one advice. The goal of this “hands-on” workshop is to provide high school seniors and their families with actual, real-time assistance in completing the FAFSA. Underclassmen and their families are also encouraged to attend and complete the FAFSA4caster to begin planning for the future.
Time: Varies from 20 minutes to 2 hours.
College Enrollment Support
This is a mentoring program that targets students, especially first generation, who need additional help after college acceptance. Students work with a mentor to explore decision making, deadlines and requirements needed to end up on a college campus. The goal is to avoid the “Summer Melt,” which can prevent students from transitioning to college because of missed deadlines and requirements.
Paying for College-For Juniors
This is an overview of options for paying for college (see above). The goal is to make students and their parents aware of financial aid as they approach their senior year. Students of all grades and their families are encouraged to attend.: 30-90 minutes.
