Hoosier students—from kindergartners through adults—can learn how to pay for education beyond high school this winter as part of Learn More Indiana's annual "Cash for College" campaign. The effort kicks off statewide this month and continues through Indiana's March 10 deadline for filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the form that qualifies students to receive financial aid from colleges, the State of Indiana, the federal government and other sources.
"Cash for College is about helping Hoosiers take practical steps that prepare them to pay for college and earn a degree with minimal debt," said Teresa Lubbers, Commissioner for Higher Education. "From an early age, we help students build a foundation of saving and budgeting, teach them about the actual cost of college, and provide step-by-step assistance on filing the FAFSA and navigating the financial aid process."
Free Cash for College Resources
Learn More Indiana's dedicated Cash for College website at CashforCollegeIndiana.org offers a variety of helpful tips and free resources for K-12 students, current college students and returning adult students, including the Indiana College Costs Estimator. Available online or as a free mobile app, the Estimator offers side-by-side cost comparisons that show how much students should expect to pay out-of-pocket at each Indiana college once various sources of financial aid are taken into account.
Contests and Upcoming Events
Learn More Indiana is sponsoring $100 college savings plan contests for students and $1,000 grant opportunities for schools during Cash for College. See deadlines and application details at CashforCollegeIndiana.org or LearnMoreIndiana.org, and check out the online events calendar to learn about these and other upcoming events:
