Constituent services workshop was attended by over 150 Marylanders

FREDERICK – Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) hosted a College Financial Aid Workshop Saturday at Tuscarora High School in Frederick. The event was attended by over 150 local residents and was the 18th constituent services workshop Delaney has held since 2015. The workshop offered Marylanders a chance to speak one-on-one with federal, state and local representatives on how to pay for higher education and also featured a presentation from the United States Department of Education.

“College affordability is one of the top priorities for young Marylanders and their parents, because quality education is required for most of the good-paying jobs of the future,” said Congressman Delaney. “Our college financial aid workshop is all about bringing resources together to provide Maryland families with the information they need. Growing up in a blue collar household, my entire life changed the day I started college and I want every student to have that same opportunity. In addition to helping families access existing programs, I support initiatives to make college more affordable, strengthen financial aid programs and simplify the paperwork involved. Marylanders who could not attend today’s workshop should contact my office for more information on college financial aid options.”

The workshop featured representatives from:

  • The U.S. Department of Education
  • The Maryland Higher Education Commission
  • Frederick Community College
  • Hood College
  • University of Maryland - Baltimore County
  • United Way of Frederick County


On June 16 Delaney will host a Job Fair in Rockville featuring many of Maryland’s largest employers.
