Moving the needle on FAFSA completion
Access ASU and its collaborators (College Depot, United Way, the Be a Leader Foundation and AzCAN) received an initial National College Access Network FAFSA completion grant for $55,000 and an additional $25,00 grant to increase FAFSA completion within the Phoenix Union High School District. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) provides eligible students the opportunity to apply for federal loans, work-study programs, scholarships and grants that don’t need to be repaid.
