College Goal Sunday Set for Feb. 28

(Bradenton, Fla., Feb. 9, 2016) – State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) will host the only College Goal Sunday event in Manatee County from 12:30 to 3 p.m. Feb. 28 at SCF Bradenton, 5840 26th St. W., Building 1. College Goal Sunday is a state-based volunteer program that helps college-bound students and their families obtain financial aid for college by completing the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and the Florida Financial Aid Application (FFAA.) Financial aid counselors will assist with the application process.

The College Goal Sunday program was established in 1989 and has evolved from a one-time event offered in the state of Indiana to a national effort including 40 state programs. The purpose of College Goal Sunday is to help more students navigate the path to and through college. Students who complete a survey about their experience at College Goal Sunday will automatically be entered into a drawing to win a $250 scholarship, which will apply to any accredited, post-secondary institution of their choice. 

An RSVP is not required. The public is invited to attend the free event. For more information, visit!FLORIDA/Home.aspx.
