The U.S. Department of Education provides billions in student financial aid every year for students attending college. But you won't see a penny of that unless you fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). As the name indicates, filling out the application is free, but it can seem daunting. A representative from the Louisiana Education Loan Authority (LELA) will be assisting parents and students in filling out your FAFSA forms at the Ascension Parish Library in Donaldsonville on Saturday, October 5 at 10:00 AM and in Gonzales on Saturday, October 26 at 10:00 AM. Parents and students will need your social security numbers, 2018 IRS income tax returns and W2s. All students attending will be entered into LELA’s $1000 FAFSA Completion Scholarship Drawing.
Registration is recommended. Students and parents can register by emailing your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
