RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Feb. 17, 2009 (PRNewswire-USNewswire) -- The California Student Aid Commission (Commission) announces its "Countdown to Cal Grants" final push to encourage and remind students to apply for Cal Grants and other financial aid for education beyond high school.
"Cal Grants provide access for students who want to pursue their college, career or technical training, said the Commission's Executive Director, Diana Fuentes-Michel. It is important that students opt-in to pursue their college and career goals and not opt-out because they don't think they qualify for financial aid."
