All San Angelo and area high school students, especially juniors and seniors, and their parents are invited to attend.

College Goal Sunday will pull together volunteers and financial aid professionals to help families of collegebound students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the federally required form for students seeking financial aid, including grants, loans and work-study.     By participating in this two-hour free event, families of college-bound students will take an important step toward applying for the financial resources necessary to make college a reality.

All participants will be entered into a drawing for one of multiple $500 tuition scholarships given by the P-16+ Education Partnership.
