Free Financial Aid Awareness Night Thursday

If there is one thing that can keep an underpaid journalist, who is also a parent, awake all night with a racing brain, its the approaching necessity of paying for your child's college.

Since I graduated, costs have increased by more than 100 percent.

Needless to say, not being a CEO who gets "paid what he's worth," my modest salary has not increased at the same rate.

Its ugly, but its reality.

And, assuming the free-college-for-all plan that Bernie Sanders is touting is squeezed lifeless in Washington, ugly is what we have to face.

Yes, college costs is the top line.
But someone in Washington wants you to know what help there is out there.

That's why U.S. Rep. Ryan Costello R-6th Dist. will be hosting a Financial Aid Awareness Night this week. 

The free seminar is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 1st from 6 to 8 p.m. at the South Hall Community Room on the Pottstown Campus of Montgomery County Community College.

Staff from Costello’s office along with representatives from Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) will be on hand to meet with students and their families.

Specifically, Costello’s staff and PHEAA will be able to explain to students and their families what financial aid opportunities are available, resources students and families can best access, and how to successfully prepare and complete the application process.

“While I am focusing on some bills to make college more affordable, I also want constituents to utilize this Financial Aid Awareness Night to provide students and families with valuable insight,” said Costello. 

“The financial aid application process can be daunting, and I appreciate the efforts of PHEAA and my staff to provide this resource to students in the Sixth District.”

Participants are encouraged to RSVP to Cody Jones with Congressman Costello’s office:
