Everyone always wants to know about the "free money". Grants are provided through federal and state funds. To apply, senior students will apply after January 1st during their senior year in high school. Paris Junior College will help us provide assistance to all our students to help them complete the forms in a timely manner.
We will schedule classroom and evening presentations in January and February to ensure every senior has an opportunity to complete this process.
