DULUTH, Minn. -

Over at Duluth Denfeld students and parents were invited to learn more about how to pay for college on Tuesday.

Duluth Denfeld held the first presentation of the year. Through out this fall scholarship presentations will be given at various schools to inform students about local scholarships. Many of these scholarships have deadlines in January, so having knowledge this early in the year can be crucial.

"It's very important that families get that scholarship information now so that when those scholarships are rewarded that helps them make the decision about what financial aid package they're going to accept," said councilor, Jenny Wellnitz.

The next presentation will be held at Proctor on Thursday, followed by Cloquet on Monday.
