FAFSA application assistance event held for Valley students

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Students looking to go to college with the help of federal funding were able to attend a FAFSA event on Saturday.

The free seminar took place at six locations throughout the Central Valley from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Organizers say without outreach to families, many eligible students would miss out on receiving financial aid.

This is the ninth year of the event. Last year more than 12,000 families participated.
