Altadena Library District Presents Paying for College: Finandial Aid and Scholarship Workshop

Altadena Library is sponsoring a workshop, Paying for College: Financial Aid and Scholarships, on Monday January 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room.

Affording a college education is a challenge for most families these days. Learn about financial aid and scholarships from the perspective of a college admissions office at our free workshop with Ashley Sim, former admissions officer at Caltech. She will discuss common misconceptions, types of aid available, and questions all parents and students should be asking the financial aid offices of colleges they are considering.

Ashley Sim is an educational consultant who provides individualized academic advising and college and law school admissions counseling to students and parents. A graduate of Stanford University and Harvard Law School, she has worked in college admissions for more than 15 years as an alumni admissions representative of Stanford and as the Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions at the California Institute of Technology. In addition to advising her own clients, Ashley works as a consultant for Colledge, a college admissions consulting company, and as a producer of Access College on KPFK 90.7 FM in Los Angeles, a radio show dedicated to providing better information about college admissions and promoting greater access to higher education. She lives in Altadena with her husband and two children.
