FAFSA assistance for first-gen students

Low-income, minority, first-generation college students are statistically less likely to apply for college financial aid even though they often stand to benefit most from doing so. Form Your Future is a campaign designed to reach out not only to the students in this population, but also to volunteers and educators who want to help families complete the FAFSA. Among their many resources are a downloadable guide to the FAFSA, as well as all the necessary materials to host a FAFSA completion event in your community. If you’re a student (or parent) worried about your ability to pay for college and in need of both encouragement and advice, or if you’re someone who advises families, the website is definitely worth visiting.
