Title:

The FAFSA Form: How to Help Students Apply for Federal Financial Aid

Presenter:

Maisha Challenger, Awareness and Outreach Specialist, Federal Student Aid

Cost:

Free to NSPA members and non-members

Description: 

During the webinar, the presenter will share valuable financial aid resources as well as offer tools for assisting students with filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). Each year there are over 120 billion dollars available to individuals who want to pursue post-secondary education but many students don’t take advantage of filling out the FAFSA form. Don't let your students miss out on a chance to qualify for federal financial assistance. Join this session to learn effective strategies on how to educate your scholars about the FAFSA form, common scenarios that may arise when filling out the application, and how to answer questions they may have about federal student aid.
