Free college funding workshops in August

HUNTLEY – Free community workshops will be held in August to teach parents of high school students about the opportunities available to help them finance their children’s college education.

“The fact is, there’s a whole range of tools, loans, grants and techniques that parents can use to help their children get the education of their choice,” college funding specialist Corwin Freeman said in a news release. “Unfortunately, few parents are aware of the options available to them and either spend far too much money out of their own pockets or force their children to attend a cheaper, lower-quality school than one they should have and wanted to attended.”

The workshops will take parents through the intricacies of the college funding system from FAFSA applications to descriptions of all the major student grants and loans and strategies to save money.

The workshops are free and will begin at 7 p.m.

On Aug. 9, a workshop will be at the Huntley Park District, 12015 Mill St., Huntley.

On Aug. 13, one will take place at the Woodstock Public Library, 414 W. Judd St., Woodstock.

Additional details are online at www.collegefundingteam.com. Seating is limited. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 847-888-3888 or online at www.collegefundingteam.com.

For information, call Linda Doss at 847-888 3888.
