College for Texans: How to get FREE $$$ for college!!!

Tuesday, February 10th, KSAT 12 News is teaming up with College For Texans to help show people in South Texas how they can get FREE MONEY for college.

This isn’t a joke – it’s serious business.

According to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, more than $4 billion (that’s billion – with a “B”) is available to pay for college in the form of grants, scholarships, work-study programs and low-interest loans. But, a lot of that money doesn’t get used – even the money that doesn’t have to be repaid – because Texans don’t know it’s available.

So, Tuesday, KSAT 12 News will be broadcasting from a phone bank where people can call in to learn more about the program. There are two main messages we’re hoping to get out:

  1. College is one of the best investments a person can make – especially in a struggling economy.
  2. That money – even free money – is available to help pay for it – but you have to know where to go and who to ask to get it.

Join us on Good Morning San Antonio when we kick off this project… Jozannah Quintanilla will be doing live reports from the phone bank on GMSA & KSAT 12 News @ Noon. Then, David Sears will pick up the baton and carry us through KSAT 12 News @5pm, The 6 o’clock News, and The NightBeat @ 10. We’ll have a toll-free hotline number where people can call to get even more information on this program. Tune in to watch – what do you have to lose?
