CALLING ALL STUDENTS WHO LIKE TO SAVE MONEY!
First, and most importantly, the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is going to be one of your best friends when looking for financial assistance. This is a general, federal application that helps the government decide if you are eligible for their help! The FAFSA will be available on October 1st, 2021 for the 2022-2023 school year!
If the FAFSA seems overwhelming and complicated, feel free to check out Going Merry - they have a friendlier version that can be found here (it's called the "FAFSA Made Easier Form" and it's absolutely free!). This option is available starting October 12th.
*If you create a GoingMerry account and complete the FAFSA through their website, they will use your application information to find scholarships you qualify for!
