McKeesport, January 25, 2012 – State Sen. Jim Brewster today announced that he will host three student aid seminars for local students and their parents.

“In these tough economic times, paying for a college education is a steep challenge,” Brewster said. “It is imperative that college students explore eligibility for every college grant or loan prospect. My seminars are aimed at helping families understand what’s out there, what they may qualify for and how to apply.”

The free seminars on financial aid and FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) applications will be held:

  • Saturday February 4 from 10 a.m. to noon in the auditorium of the Community College of Allegheny College Boyce Campus, Monroeville;
  • Saturday February 25 from 10 a.m. to noon in the auditorium at Penn State New Kensington; and
  • Saturday March 3 from 10 a.m. to noon in the Ostermeyer Room of the Student Community Center at Penn State Greater Allegheny.

Attendees are required to register. Please contact Kathy Jo Osman at 412-664-5200 or email her at with any questions or to RSVP.
