FAFSA Help for Families

SRQ Story Project

The Florida College Access Network estimates, “Each year Florida students leave $100 million dollars on the table!” 

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. PLANit Sarasota, the local college access network, is providing FAFSA open houses, with trained volunteers, in February virtually or at LaunchPad4U, the Education Foundation of Sarasota’s community resource center located in the Rosemary District.
