Hays High School is hosting its annual Financial Aid Night for all interested seniors and parents at 7 p.m. Sept. 18 in the Hays High School Lecture Hall.

Families will learn how to apply for all types of state and federal financial aid using the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  

Completing the FAFSA is a required step when seeking most need-based scholarships, grants, loans and work-study. The FAFSA is used across the U.S. at nearly all colleges, public career/tech ed schools, and some private trade schools. Wendy Rohleder-Sook, director of student financial assistance at Fort Hays State University, will be the guest speaker for the evening. She will be speaking on behalf of all Kansas financial aid administrators.
