Resource of the Week – FAFSA

First Lady Michelle Obama talks
about the FAFSA
If First Lady Michelle Obama shows up to your high school to watch you fill out a form, that form must be pretty important.

It's a fact that filling out the FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is one of the most important things students and families can do in planning for college success.

“You don’t have to be the valedictorian. You don’t have to major in a certain subject,” the First Lady said in her remarks at a high school in Virginia this week. “You don’t even have to be at the bottom of the income ladder to receive the money.”

Many students are eligible for some kind of financial aid, and all you have to do to access that aid is fill out this one little form.
