Assemblyman Dario Frommer (D-Burbank) is encouraging high school
seniors in his district to apply for the state’s Cal Grant program.
Forms must be postmarked no later than Monday.
Cal Grants can pay for a student’s entire tuition at the
University of California and California State University systems, and
up to $9,700 for private institutions.
A brochure detailing the program will be distributed to all
seniors. Applicants are required to complete and file a Free
Application for Federal Student Aid form, which is also used to apply
for federal financial-aid programs, including the federal Pell Grant.
Application forms can be obtained from high school counselors,
college financial-aid offices and the Federal Student Aid Information
Center at (800) 433-3243. The form can also be filed online at
In addition to the federal student-aid form, Cal Grant applicants
must also submit a Commission Grade Point Average Verification Form,
which requires a school official to verify each student’s GPA. This
form can also be obtained from high school counselors and college
financial aid offices.
For more information on the Cal Grant program, call Frommer’s
office at 240-6330.
