Brown, PHEAA to Hold Financial Aid Awareness Program


East Stroudsburg, PA – Rep. Rosemary M. Brown (R-Monroe/Pike) invites families of potential college students to attend a Financial Aid Awareness program on Saturday, Jan. 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at East Stroudsburg High School South.

The meeting is being held by Brown and the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA). PHEAA, based in Pennsylvania, is a national provider of student financial aid services, serving millions of students and thousands of schools through its loan guaranty, loan servicing, financial aid processing, outreach, and other student aid programs.

“There is no doubt that college is expensive, and families need every available resource to make the experience as affordable as possible,” Brown said. “That is why I’m working with PHEAA to increase awareness about a number of resources available to help families with college-bound students.”

The purpose of the program is to help students and their families understand different types of financial aid opportunities. Representatives from PHEAA will explain the types of opportunities available and the resources families can use to obtain them. The meeting will also include information about various scholarship opportunities.

The high school is located at 279 North Courtland St., East Stroudsburg.

Students and/or their families need not register in advance.
