FAFSA Help for Families

SRQ Story Project


In 2018 alone, 661,000 graduates who were eligible for federal financial aid lost out on their share because they did not complete a form.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can seem overwhelming, and some families incorrectly assume that they need not bother because their students would not qualify for aid.

The FAFSA is worth taking time to complete because:

  • Financial aid is not just for low-income students.
  • Many scholarships, grants and other types of merit-based awards require the FAFSA information.
  • Technical college students are eligible for financial aid; it is not limited to traditional college or university students.   

Help in completing the FAFSA is available at no charge to students and families. The Sarasota Local College Access Network is providing FAFSA open houses, with trained volunteers, on February 24, 26, and 27.
