Paying for college starts with the FAFSA. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the starting point for financial aid, including federal grants, loans, work study, and scholarships. In most cases, the federal government sees students (24 years or younger) as a dependent, which is why the parent is required to participate in the FAFSA. You play a big role in helping your student reach their educational dreams!
After helping thousands of families file the FAFSA, there are few situations we haven’t seen. We’ve condensed the process down to the following four steps.
|We’re giving away a $1,000 scholarship to a Montana high school senior who completes the FAFSA by December 1 and shows us their #FAFSAface. To enter, take a selfie and mark, write or sticker #FAFSAface on it. Share the photo on Facebook or Instagram and tag #FAFSAface in the caption or comments. Finalists will be chosen starting Dec. 2, and a winner will be announced on Dec. 10, 2018.|
