VIRGINIA TECH OFFERS FREE SERVICE TO HELP FIND FINANCIAL AID
Want to learn more about the $60 billion available in grants, scholarships, and low-interest student loans each year for college? Need to be reminded of when your application and other pertinent information is due?
Virginia Tech's Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA) now offers a free listserv to both current and prospective students and their parents. The listserv contains information about scholarship and financial aid processes and programs across the country, as well as information specific to Virginia Tech.
"We find that often students lose financial aid for college because they didn't meet certain deadlines," said Barry Simmons, OSFA director. "This service uses net technology to get critical information and reminders out to students faster."
The listserv, called FlashMail, is sent monthly and contains information on such topics as federal financial aid options and application processes, scholarships, workstudy options, and links to other resources.
