FAFSA Application

If you’re getting read to journey to college, or currently in college, and haven’t filled out the FAFSA for the 2019–2020 school year, then drop everything and get going!

Go to FAFSA.gov to find the form.

Colleges use the FAFSA to determine how much money to offer students through scholarships, grants, and student loans.

Although it has a really bad rep for being really confusing, the FAFSA application is inot that bad. Those old perceptions are outdated. It should takes less than 30 minutes to complete.

Every student should fill one of these out, regardless of their family’s financial situation.

There’s no income cutoff to be eligible for aid, and you won’t know how much aid you can even receive unless you try.

Scholarship Application

The FAFSA application isn’t the only way to get scholarships. There are hundreds of scholarships available to all types students (getting good grades, first generation college student, being a member of a minority group, and many more).

There are a lot of scholarships out there, particularly if you start their search today! Otherwise, the longer you delay beginning your search, the less money there is available. Hurry!
