Bellevue University, EducationQuest to Host Students and Parents for FAFSA Completion Workshop & Dinner on Thursday, Feb. 28

Dinner and a movie is certainly one way to go. But Bellevue University and the EducationQuest Foundation are offering current and prospective metro area college students and families an alternative this month: Dinner and help with their FAFSA

The University is hosting a free FAFSA Completion Workshop on Thursday, Feb. 28. The workshop, which includes dinner, will be held as an open house – attendees are welcome to come and go as they like between 4-7 p.m. The event will take place in the Educational Services Building, Room 4154 on the Bellevue University campus. The Google Maps address for the ESB Building is 818 Bruin Blvd., Bellevue, Nebraska, 68005.

Pre-registration for the event is required; RSVP online by Friday, Feb. 22. Attendees are encouraged to fill out an EducationQuest checklist prior to attending the workshop. The checklist is available on the RSVP web page.

Attendees are encouraged to fill out an EducationQuest checklist prior to the event.

According to Johnna Hargens-Brown, Director of Scholarships & Grants at Bellevue University, “February is Financial Aid Awareness Month and we thought it was the perfect time to help current and prospective students and parents get their FAFSAs completed for the 2019-2020 school year.” FAFSA determines students’ eligibility for federal grants, loans and work-study programs. Bellevue University utilizes the FAFSA to determine financial need for its need-based scholarships.

At the workshop, professionals from the EducationQuest Foundation will be on hand to help students, one-on-one, with their 2019-2010 FAFSA. Representatives from the Bellevue University Scholarships & Grants team will also be available to provide information and answer questions about other forms of aid for education. “We know paying for college is a major concern for many families,” said Hargens-Brown. “Bellevue University is committed to helping students secure as much funding for school as possible and filing the FAFSA is an important first step in the process.” She added that the event may be especially beneficial for first-generation college students and their parents.
