CFPS TAPS BILLION-DOLLAR POOL FOR GUARANTEED FINANCIAL AID FOR COLLEGE

CFPS TAPS BILLION-DOLLAR POOL FOR GUARANTEED FINANCIAL AID FOR COLLEGE
 JENKINTOWN, Pa., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- If finding the money for a college education has your stomach in knots and your head in a daze, you'll be relieved to know that financing an education is far easier than you feared.
 In fact, it's not only easier, it's guaranteed by College Funding and Planning Service, Inc. (CFPS) in Jenkintown. With access to a database of more than 300,000 scholarship sources, CFPS is so successful at identifying scholarships and financial aid that if they can't help you secure some form of financial assistance, they will give you a $250 U.S. Savings Bond.
 In addition to targeting scholarships and other assistance programs, CFPS also guarantees a student loan of up to $4,000 per year at favorable rates without any credit or income qualifications.
 "Lack of money can no longer be a valid excuse for not going to college," said attorney Matt Pratta, president of CFPS. "There are billions of dollars in financial aid resources, many of which are going untapped simply because no one applies for them.
 "Our service is the most thorough in the nation in matching students with available financial assistance," added Pratta. "In fact, we are the only scholarship-locating program that can guarantee that every student who uses us will receive money."
 Scholarship sources targeted specifically for each student are presented in a personalized 40-page Financial Planning Report. The report is produced from information students provide to CFPS on a simple four-page form covering such items as parents' employment and finances, hobbies, possible majors, religious affiliation and athletic ability.
 In addition to detailed financial aid information on three colleges of the student's choosing, the report also provides comprehensive instructions on applying for all forms of financial aid. "No one should miss out on an education because of easily avoidable mistakes on the financial aid application form," said Pratta.
 An even more certain alternative available through CFPS is a guaranteed loan of up to $4,000 per year through the federally guaranteed PLUS loan program that entails no credit checks and no income restriction, and offers low interest rates and a long-term payback of up to 10 years following graduation.
 Other services available from CFPS include TestBusters(TM), which helps high school juniors raise their SAT scores by nearly 100 points.
 "TestBusters can help you qualify for the school of your choice, and the personalized Financial Planning Report can help you afford it," said Pratta.
 To receive more information about CFPS programs, send a long SASE with two First Class stamps affixed to College Funding and Planning Service, Inc., 700-39 Fox Pavilion, Jenkintown, Pa. 19046.
