Free Application for Federal Student Aid
***Use FAFSA4caster for an early estimate of your eligibility for federal student aid***

The application period for students seeking financial aid for colleges or vocational
schools for 2015-16 will be January 1, 2015 to March 2, 2015. Seniors who submit this
application will begin the process of applying for grants from both the Sate of California
and the Federal Government, scholarships from the colleges to which they have
applied, and self-help money in the form of college work study grants and student loans.
ECV counselors will visit senior classrooms and hand out FAFSA information after
the winter break and there will be a FAFSA information night in February as well.


Students seeking scholarship information should go to the El Cajon Valley website 
to find the most current scholarship information available.
 Remember, applying for scholarships is very time consuming. 
Don’t wait until the last minute to apply. 
Many applications require essays as well as the completion of extensive application forms. 
Many also require letters of recommendation.
