Financial aid expert from Lehman College says help is available to BX parents
For some Bronx parents, sending their child to college seems like an unaffordable reality. But according to one expert, financial aid is more available then Bronx parents think.
David Martinez runs the financial aid office at Lehman College. He says thousands of families just don't know where to begin when it comes to filling out forms for grants and scholarships. He says parents should not be intimidated when it comes to filling out the income section on the forms.
Martinez warns parents to beware of scams in the form of financial aid seminars and Web sites. He says some charge money for applications and information that are actually available for free.
