Through the generous sponsorship of the Sacramento Kings, Team SAGE, Target Excellence, and statewide Cash for College, students who get help with their FAFSA or Dream Act application at a Cash for College workshop in the Sacramento area might score tickets to a Kings game!!

This year the Sacramento Cal-SOAP Consortium and its Cash for College partners have organized even more workshops to assist students and families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Dream Act application and Cal Grant GPA Verification (required for Cal Grants).

These workshops are not only an excellent opportunity to get free help with the financial aid application process that is so important for aspiring college students, it's also an opportunity to be in the running for a $1,000 scholarship awarded for every qualifying workshop!!

This year students have an additional source for funding a college education through the new California Middle Class Scholarship. Applying for this assistance is alsothrough the FAFSA or Dream Act application! Additional workshops have been added to support students!
