    - Each year, college students and parents are required to file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This application is required in order to receive any federal, state and in most cases institutional grants, scholarships and student loans.

    Even though there are priority deadlines, schools continue to accept and process the FAFSA throughout the school year. Federal aid does not have a deadline until the end of the academic year. However, there are deadlines for state and institutional funds. Even with the state scholarships, there are times when additional funds are made available and late awards are made.

    “Summer is a great time for students to be using the next couple of months to search for private scholarships,” stated Cissy VanSickle, Director of Financial Aid at Garrett College. “It is important to note that one should never pay for a scholarship search, a scholarship application, or help in filling out a FAFSA.”

    The Garrett College website provides a list of helpful links for students and parents to find information on various scholarships and scholarship search engines, including http://www.studentaid.ed.gov and http://www.fastweb.com. “Even if a student is not attending Garrett College, the Financial Aid Office will be more than happy to answer general questions,” VanSickle said. “Students who will graduate in 2017 will experience some changes in federal aid and the deadlines. We will announce that information early this school year, so students and parents are aware.”

    For general questions or for more information about financial aid, contact the Garrett College Financial Aid Office at 301-387-3080 or visit http://www.garrettcollege.edu/payingforeducation/financialaid/scholarships.

     
           
  • - Cumberland Theatre, 101 N. Johnson Street, presents 1776, America's Prize Winning Musical, July 21 - 31.


    The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this Broadway hit. 1776 puts a human face on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures determined to do the right thing for a fledgling nation.

    Performance Times- Thursday, Friday & Saturday, 8 pm; Sunday, 2 pm. Tickets: $18/adults; $16/Seniors & Sunday Matinee; $10/Students. http://www.cumberlandtheatre.com, 301-759-4990.
