Bellevue University Announces Free Series to Help Students Understand Financial Aid

In honor of Financial Aid Awareness Month, Bellevue University’s Scholarships and Grants Department will host a series with weekly sessions to help students better understand topics related to financial aid.

The series will feature four 60-minute sessions. Three sessions will be held via Zoom and one will be held in person. There is no fee to participate.

“We want students to understand their options and to know they have options,” Johnna Hargens-Brown, Director of Scholarships and Grants at Bellevue University, said. “We want them to become more financially literate as it pertains to aid so they are better prepared to make informed financial decisions as it pertains to their education.”
