|College Goal Sunday is Feb. 22; volunteers sought|
College Goal Sunday is a one-day event in February where students and their families receive hands-on assistance to complete the free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). College Goal Sunday is a growing, national event sponsored by Lumina Foundation for Education.
We are seeking volunteers for the event. Your help is needed for registration, general student assistance, tech support, or tax preparation questions.
If you are interested in volunteering, please complete a volunteer form on the College Goal North Dakota Web site by Jan. 30. The site is http://www.collegegoalnd.org/ and the form is under the volunteers tab (at the top of the page). The site also provides more information on the 11 locations and College Goal Sunday's history.
College Goal Sunday North Dakota will be held Feb. 22 at 11 locations. These include Belcourt, Bismarck, Dickinson, Fargo, Fort Totten, Fort Yates, Grafton, Grand Forks, Minot, New Town, and Williston. Students who participate will be eligible to win prizes and scholarships.
