Federal student loans offer benefits not available through private loans, including low, fixed interest rates; income-based repayment plans; loan forgiveness; and deferment options.
Students who attend College Goal Sunday events and register on theWashBoard.org – a free scholarship clearinghouse for Washington students – will be eligible to win a college scholarship from the Northwest Education Loan Association (NELA).
Four workshop participants will also receive $250 scholarships through a raffle.
Interlake High School is located at 16245 NE 24th Street in Bellevue.
