GRASP, a career and college access organization, is encouraging high school seniors to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as a first step toward their postsecondary education/training goals.
“Millions of students who are eligible for aid fail to file the FAFSA each year, leaving “money on the table” that could be supporting their postsecondary education, according to the National College Attainment Network.
“Completion of the FAFSA may help predict a student’s success in postsecondary education. Ninety percent of high school seniors who complete FAFSA attend college directly after high school, compared to just 55% of FAFSA non-completers,” according to the NCAN.
GRASP Advisors can assist students/families, with FAFSA completion, virtually and free of charge.
Virtual appointments are available on Wednesdays, from 6 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays, from 2 to 4 p.m.
