Trine, Steuben schools partner for Virtual FAFSA and Financial Aid Night

Steuben County public high schools are partnering with Trine University to host “Virtual FAFSA and Financial Aid Night” on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

The one-hour event will begin at 6 p.m. on Zoom. Students and parents from Angola, Fremont, Prairie Heights and Hamilton high schools who want to participate can contact their school guidance counselors to get the Zoom link.

“With events such as college fairs and information sessions canceled or limited due to the pandemic, we wanted to provide this resource for Steuben County students who are looking to continue their education after high school,” said Kelly McGuire, executive director of enrollment at Trine.

McGuire will present on topics including:

  • What is financial aid?
  • How is financial aid calculated?
  • Types and sources of financial aid
  • How to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Stephanie Smith, scholar and data specialist for the Questa Education Foundation, also will present on that organization’s resources for college students. Questa offers several programs to help area students graduate from college with less debt.

The presentation will be recorded and distributed to Steuben County high schools for future use. For more information, contact area high school guidance counselors or email McGuire at
