Pennsylvania State Grant and Special Programs Events

2019-20 Summer Workshops

The State Grant and Special Programs Department conducts annual workshops to provide financial aid administrators with information about upcoming policy changes for the PA State Grant Program. This year, we are pleased to announce that, in addition to the PA State Grant training, the workshops will include a lunch and learn session on the new PA Forward Private Student Loan Program.

The PA State Grant session will provide:

  • An opportunity to learn about program updates
  • A chance to explore difficult student certification and eligibility topics with PHEAA staff

The PA Forward Lunch and Learn will provide:

  • An overview of the PA Forward Student Loan Program including the application process and certification process
  • An opportunity to participate in a Q&A session with PHEAA staff

The 2019-20 Workshops will be offered as seven (7) half-day sessions from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM at various locations around the state. Check out the dates and locations below! Registration will become available in the next few weeks.
