College For Texans - Free Money for a College Education
February 21, 2013 at 9:50 PM CST - Updated June 30 at 2:25 PM
You and your children can access money for a college education.
You may think it seems too good to be true, but in reality, the money is there for the taking. Did you know that over 4 billion dollars are available to you and your children to pay for college in the form of grants, scholarships, work study programs, low interest loans, and more? Most of that money is left on the table, available but never taken advantage of. Most people just don't know how to apply for it.
KLTV is aiming to change that. We want to make sure every parent in East Texas has the opportunity to get financial aid to send their child to college, community college, or technical school.
On Monday, February 25th, KLTV's Taylor Hemness will be reporting live from Austin during our evening newscasts, telling our viewers about the millions of dollars in free money, grants and scholarships available through the State of Texas to help pay for post-high school education for all Texas children.
There will also be a live phone bank of college financial aid experts,ready to take calls on a toll free line from our viewers and answer questions about how parents can secure financial aid - in many cases, free money - to send their children to college. The phone banks will be up and running on Monday from 8 a.m. - 11 p.m. and Tuesday from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.
The toll-free number to call is 1-888-311-8881 for information.
