Through community-wide efforts, last year Florida increased FAFSA completion by 9.1% through March 2017, which brought an additional $37 million in Pell Grants to college freshmen statewide. This support is critical in helping students go to college.
Join Amy Bolick, FCAN’s Statewide Programs Coordinator, and Kimberly Lent, FCAN’s Senior Research Associate, for a discussion of 2017-18 FAFSA season updates. FCAN will share strategies for tracking and boosting FAFSA completion and will look at how to get the most out of the FAFSA Challenge data dashboard. Special guest Ralph Aiello — Director, School Counseling, Broward County Public Schools & BRACE (Broward Advisors for Continuing Education) — will share how Broward’s school district has initiated its own FAFSA Challenge.
