The Cook Family Foundation is hosting a financial aid workshop on Monday, January 20, at 7 p.m. at the Baker College Welcome Center. The presenter will be Mike Davis, from the Financial Aid Office of the University of Michigan. While the workshop is directed to students interested in attending the University of Michigan, the information presented would be valuable to any student–and their parents–seeking financial assistance to attend college. The workshop is open to anyone, but reservations are requested; please contact Yvette Collard at 989-725-1621 or [email protected]
Attending any four year institution is an expensive undertaking, but the University of Michigan has made a commitment to provide substantial assistance to any student in the State of Michigan who has demonstrated financial need. Grants, loans, work-study, and scholarships are all part of the financial aid package and can come from the federal government, private sources (like the Cook Family Foundation), and the University itself. The process can be complex; this workshop will help demystify financial aid and provide clear direction on how to qualify for the most assistance from the University of Michigan.
