Free In-Person Financial Aid Workshops for High School Counselors through MASFAP

MASFAP’s Early Awareness Committee is planning in-person high school counselor workshops around Missouri this fall. We are excited to announce we have confirmed 14 locations! These are free workshops focused on pertinent financial aid topics. We encourage high school counselors and college access professionals to attend.

Unless otherwise noted, workshops will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. with an optional networking/lunch session from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Participants will be provided a boxed lunch at the end, so you can stay for networking or take your lunch back to the office. Topics that will be covered this year: 2022-23 FAFSA updates, what happens after the FAFSA, funding for college including scholarships and loans, and an update from MOCAN (Missouri College and Career Attainment Network).
