Rep. Green Invites Students and Families to Paying for College Workshop

Representatives from local colleges and U.S. Military Academies, and on site $500 Scholarship raffle giveaway

Congressman Gene Green invites Houston-area students and families to his “Paying for College Workshop” on Monday, February 10th at Chavez High School.  This free financial aid seminar is designed to give students and their families the tools they need to plan for college.

“In the Houston Independent School District, only about half of high school graduates go on to college.  Of those who do, many are first generation college students who may not have any idea how to pay for college. For all parents and students, understanding how to finance higher education can be difficult. That’s why we hold these events twice a year, we want families to have access to the information and resources they need,” Green said.

The Sallie Mae Fund will present about the financial aid process, finding scholarships, and choosing the right college or university. One high school senior will win a $500 scholarship from The Sallie Mae Fund during the event.

Representatives from the U.S. Military Service Academies and several colleges including Rice University, University of Houston, Houston Community College, San Jacinto College, Devry University and Lone Star College will be available to share information about their institutions and answers questions.
