The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the best way to make college affordable. Completing the FAFSA gives students access to federal, state, and college-based sources to help pay for their postsecondary education.
Check out FCAN’s Top 5 Reasons to Complete the FAFSA video below, and learn some of the ways Florida students benefit from completing the federal form.
Want to learn more about increasing FAFSA completions at your school or district? Join the Florida FAFSA Challenge, a statewide campaign that helps students fill out the FAFSA and qualify for financial aid programs like the Pell Grant. You can currently view FCAN’s “First Look” FAFSA dashboard showing the number of seniors who have completed the FAFSA by school since Oct. 1.
To learn more about the Florida FAFSA Challenge and how your school can gain recognition, and possibly a trophy, visit our Florida Initiatives page for access to our toolkit, resources, email list and much more.
