Project Gateway Presents Financial Aid/FAFSA workshops in Fort Hamilton High School


Fort Hamilton High School Financial Aid Workshop

On Wednesday, November 20th, Project Gateway (PG) facilitated a resourceful Financial Aid/FAFSA workshop at Fort Hamilton High School in Brooklyn. A total of 59 parents and high school students participated in this event. Both parents and students were educated about the financial aid process for college-bound students and the importance of family involvement through the whole process.

During the workshop, PG counselors shared their knowledge and experience about navigating financial aid resources for college students. Topics that were covered include: completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the purpose of the CSS profile, Excelsior Scholarship Requirements, and the Senator Jose Peralta New York State Dream Act. PG counselors provided detailed instructions on how to complete the forms and which form serves what purpose. After the session, PG also provided a FAQ session where parents asked questions concerning their financial status as low-income, 1st generation college-bound students.

*This session was conducted in Mandarin. If you are interested in having PG conduct a workshop for your group, please feel free to email
