BOWLING GREEN, O.—The financial aid process can be daunting. Bowling Green State University is hosting workshops on Jan. 22 and Feb. 4 to help students and their families understand the application and award process.

Two workshops will be held on Jan. 22. The first runs from 9 a.m. to noon, and the second from 1-4 p.m. The Feb. 4 session runs from 9 a.m. to noon. Registration is required to attend. You can register online at http://sfa.bgsu.edu/workshop. All workshops will be held in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union Ballroom.

Attendees will learn about the costs associated with college that financial aid can help cover, information on filling out and filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, scholarship opportunities at BGSU, and federal, state and institutional grant, loan and employment programs available to help make college more affordable.
