Student Financial Aid

Recently, I hosted a free PHEAA (Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency) Financial Aid Education Day at CCAC-Allegheny Campus. Kim McCurdy from PHEAA presented information on the financial aid process to students and parents explaining what financial aid opportunities are available and which resources can assist in obtaining them.

Senator FontanaIf you were not able to attend this seminar or if you would like to learn more about the process of securing financial aid for a post-secondary education, I encourage you to view the presentation that was offered at Saturday’s seminar. You can view the presentation by clicking here. PHEAA also has a webinar available on their website that explains the financial aid process. You can watch that webinar by clicking here.

Additionally, if you would like a Pennsylvania Student Aid Guide and other materials that were presented, you may pick those up at any of my district offices. If you have more specific questions about the financial aid process you may also email Kim McCurdy at

As Vice-Chair of PHEAA’s Board of Directors, I’m proud of the work PHEAA does in creating access to higher education. If you’re a parent or guardian who has a student considering a post-secondary education, I encourage you to review these materials to learn more about what financial aid opportunities exist.
