The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a crucial step for high school seniors embarking on their journey to higher education.

FAFSA serves as the gateway to federal grants, loans, and work-study programs, providing financial assistance to students and making college more accessible. By completing the FAFSA, students may also qualify for state and institutional aid, expanding their financial support options.

FAFSA is an essential tool in alleviating the financial burden of college education.

Grand Rapids Public Schools and Grand Rapids Promise Zone teams are hosting FAFSA Workshops where experienced advisors will be available to guide scholars and their families through the application, ensuring they maximize their eligibility for financial aid.

Attending a FAFSA Workshop is a proactive step toward securing the necessary resources for a successful college experience.
