March 1 is deadline to apply for PROMISE scholarships

February 19, 2008

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Students looking for help with their college expenses have less than two weeks to apply for state assistance.

If students don't make the March 1 deadline, they won't be eligible for the PROMISE scholarship or state higher education grants.

The Federal Application for Financial Student Aid will be taken through June, but after March 1 will only be considered for federal money.

Jack Toney is director of state financial aid programs with the state's Higher Education Policy Commission. He says the sooner students turn in their applications, the better their chance of getting aid.
