LANSING, MI — Michigan families and students looking for help paying for college should save the date for one of MI Student Aid’s new financial aid traveling one-stop shops visiting Grand Rapids and Novi, according to the Michigan Department of Treasury (Treasury).
Under the banner “MI College, MI Future, MI Doorstep,” Treasury’s MI Student Aid Outreach Team is visiting communities across the state to educate and inform Michigan students and their families about options for paying for college.
MI Student Aid Outreach Teams will be at:
- Metro Detroit National College Fair
Sunday, March 26, from 2-4 p.m. and Monday, March 27, from 8:30-Noon
Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan
- West Michigan National College Fair
Tuesday, March 28, from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 6-8 p.m.
DeVos Place in Grand Rapids, Michigan
At each location, team members will present financial aid workshops and provide assistance with scholarship searches, college financing strategies and state program eligibility look-ups, as well as staff a resource table with financial aid materials. These programs are FREE and open to the public.
“Trying to figure out how to pay for college can be overwhelming,” said Anne Wohlfert, director of Treasury’s Student Financial Services Bureau. “Many college-bound students and their families don’t know where to begin. As the state’s go-to resource for college financial aid information, we will have staff available at these events to answer questions and provide guidance about paying for college.”
Administered by Treasury, MI Student Aid is Michigan’s go-to resource for finding the financial resources needed to pay for college. For more information, contact MI Student Aid at firstname.lastname@example.org, 1-888-4-GRANTS or @mistudentaid on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
