A formerly homeless student shares how GRASP helped her continue her education after high school, through assistance with the FAFSA and a Last Dollar Scholarship.

Advisors are adept at navigating the college financial aid system and the processes required to make a post-secondary educational plan a reality. Advisors work without charge to the students and their families primarily through individual in-school meetings. They also present financial aid seminars in libraries and other public forums. Advisors access institutional, federal, state and community resources.  Advisors are typically available one day a week, through high school counseling departments or career centers, to meet with students and their parents or guardians.

Your GRASP Financial Aid Advisor will help you with: the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the CSS profilescholarships, and special circumstances to help you make your post-secondary education goals a reality.

To make an appointment with your advisor, please contact your school counseling office. For additional support, contact Anne Michie, Director of Advising, at amichie@grasp4va.org.
