The mission of The Advocates for FAFSA Program is to raise early awareness and provide a relatable, comprehensible, fun-friendly financial aid experience to underrepresented, first-generation, low-income students and their families. We seek to generate a culture of understanding and care when it comes to filling out financial aid.
We assist graduating seniors and their families by helping them to understand that FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the gateway for federal student aid, which includes grants and loans, as well as aid offered by states and colleges. Anyone attending college or planning to attend college should complete and submit a FAFSA application. This is the only way to receive federal financial aid for college in the forms of Pell Grants, work-study, federal student loans, and some scholarships.
