Florida FAFSA Challenge

59% of Florida high school seniors who complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) qualify for a Pell Grant, one of the largest forms of federal aid available to low-income students.

But Florida ranks 30th in the nation for FAFSA completion.

Florida College Access Network started the Florida FAFSA Challenge in 2014 to encourage all Florida schools and districts to increase FAFSA completion by 5% over the previous year.
