Cash for College

The Cash for College program is designed to increase college access and success, seeks to inform, assist and reward program participants. In 2015, IEEP was designated by the California Student Aid Commission as the Inland Empire Regional Coordinating Organization (RCO) to provide Financial Aid Completion Workshops assistance to students and their families. During the workshops participants receive individualized assistance to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the California Dream Act application, and other financial aid forms.

More than 120 financial aid workshops were held throughout the Inland Empire region in 2016 assisting more than 4,000 students complete and submit their FAFSA applications.  IEEP with the support from the Cardenas Foundation also awarded approximately $12,000.00 in scholarships to students that participated in IEEP’s Cash for College workshops.
