Students attending college during the 2014-15 academic year now have access to a new scholarship opportunity that may help make higher education more affordable, according to a news release.

The Middle Class Scholarship is a new program, beginning next year, that may provide students whose family income is less than $150,000 with a scholarship to attend a University of California or California State University campus.

Information about MCS and other financial aid programs is available during a series of free Cash for College workshops.

Lodi High School will host a Cash for College FAFSA workshop today in the school’s career center. Bilingual financial aid professionals will be available to assist local seniors and their parents with their FAFSA or DREAM Act application from 4 to 7:30 p.m. One senior who participates will win a $1,000 scholarship. For more information, call Becky Jauregui at 209-331-7702 or email bjauregui@lodiusd.net.

Tokay High School will hold its own Cash for College event from 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 25 in the Tokay library. Seniors can sign up in the career center to reserve a computer for that evening. For more information, call Virginia Menezes at 209-331-7971 or email vmenezes@lodiusd.net.

And Ronald E. McNair High School will sponsor an event from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday. For more information, call Mary Ann Ryan at 209-953-8966 or email maryan@lodiusd.net.

While no workshops are being held in Galt, the Sacramento Cal-SOAP Consortium, a program of the California Student Aid Commission and the Sacramento County Office of Education, is sponsoring a workshop at 6 p.m. Feb. 12 at Laguna Creek High School, 9050, Vicuino Drive, in Elk Grove.

Students attending the two-hour workshop can get help filling out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid and DREAM Act applications. Applicants could also be eligible for free tickets to an upcoming Sacramento Kings game. For more information, contact Monica Roberts, Cal-SOAP director at 916-228-2656.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
