Florida College Access Network is announcing a challenge to all schools and districts to increase FAFSA completion rates by 5% in 2016! Join us for a webinar on December 9th from 2-3pm to learn more about the challenge and what strategies can benefit students in completing the application.
The FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, will be available on January 1st for students who plan to attend college next fall. Unfortunately, thousands of Florida graduating high school seniors could qualify for free money for college but don’t because they do not complete the form. Florida CAN’s research shows that our state’s high school graduates leave behind over $100 million in Pell Grants each year by not completing the form. Helping students complete the FAFSA is a crucial step to ensuring that finances are not a barrier for academically prepared students looking to attend a college, university or technical school.
Join Troy Miller, Florida CAN’s Associate Director for Research and Policy, and a panel of experts for a discussion of what strategies and resources are available to help increase FAFSA completion rates in Florida, and learn how to participate in Florida CAN’s 2016 Florida FAFSA Challenge.
