Tampa, FL- All organizations in Florida who provide college-readiness and access services are now invited to apply online to become an official College Goal Sunday provider for 2011. Applications to become a College Goal Sunday site can be found at www.collegegoalsundayfl.org and by clicking on “Become A Site”. College Goal Sunday Florida is an event designed to help limited-income, college-bound students pay for college by providing FREE expert advice and assistance completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. The form known as the FAFSA, is used to apply for federal student aid such as the Pell grant, work-study aid, and loans. The FAFSA also helps students apply for most state and various private aid. “We are reaching families close to where they live and providing support on this key step in the college-going process,” said Braulio Colón, ENLACE Florida. Students and families who need assistance completing the FAFSA form can attend any College Goal Sunday site on February 20, 2011 from 2pm-5pm for free help. All students who complete the FAFSA form at a College Goal Sunday location may become eligible for incentives including scholarships.
