Union site for College Goal Sunday

BARBOURVILLE — Union College in Barbourville has been named as one of 17 sites throughout Kentucky next month for College Goal Sunday, a charitable program providing free assistance and information to families applying for college financial aid.

This event will be less than two-and-a-half weeks away, on Sunday, Jan. 13, starting at 2 p.m. at the Weeks-Townsend Memorial Library at 310 College Street on the Union campus. It differs from previous years when College Goal Sunday was held on the last weekend in January.

It’s set up annually by the Kentucky Association of Student Financial Aid Administration (KASFAA), and zeros in on low-income and disadvantaged students needing financial aid to attend college, and who also need help applying for the aid.

The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA), the Kentucky Higher Education Student Loan Corporation (KHESLC), KnowHow2goKY, and USA Funds are the primary sponsors for College Goal Sunday. Many other organizations and people also contribute to the program.

Financial aid professionals from colleges and universities in the state will be at Union that afternoon to help students headed for college and their families complete what’s called the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA.

Officials say the FAFSA form is important to fill out because it’s required for students who seek federal financial aid, such as grants and loans, for all colleges and universities in America.

According to KHEAA, students participating in state financial aid programs have more than quadrupled since the 1990s. The organization disbursed almost $200 million in higher education scholarships and grants to nearly 127,000 students in the 2009-10 academic year.

 Other locations holding the event in Kentucky include Somerset, Lexington, Prestonsburg and Frankfort.

For more information on College Goal Sunday, contact Union College at 606 546-4151, or call KASFAA at 1-888-452-7322. You can also go to KASFAA’s website at www.kasfaa.com.
