March 2 (actually, March 3 this year) is the deadline for Cal Grant applications.
Even if you think your family income might be too high to qualify, I hear that it doesn’t hurt to bring in your tax and income documents just to be sure. Many of the workshops are staffed with people who speak various languages, and they help families fill out those cumbersome forms.
The Cash For College Web site has a calendar which lists the places and times of each workshop. It also includes a list of what to bring. Oakland High, Skyline, Oakland Military Institute, Castlemont, Fremont and Laney College all have sessions scheduled between Jan. 30 and Feb. 23.
