    The Financial Aid Seminars are held annually at designated Pinellas County public high schools. It does not matter which workshop you attend, the information is identical at each presentation.

    If you are a student, or parent or guardian of a student, planning to attend a postsecondary institution and you are concerned about how to obtain financial aid, we invite you to attend a free seminar sponsored by the Pinellas County school system.

    These presentations are most useful to parents and students who are looking for scholarships or need-based financial assistance to further their education after graduating from high school. Seminar speakers address the needs of current juniors and seniors, placing emphasis on school and district resources along with state and federal programs.

    Public and private school students and their parents may attend a financial aid seminar at any of the locations designated. Please contact the individual school for the exact location within the school.
