Southeast High School will host FASFA Frenzy 2017 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 26 in the library at the school, which is located at 3500 E. Meyer Blvd. in Kansas City, Mo. All members of the news media are invited and encouraged to attend.
Presented by the Missouri College Advising Corps, the goal of Southeast’s administration is for 70 percent of the senior class to complete their FAFSA, which stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Each year, the FASFA Frenzy event helps thousands of Missouri students complete the application used by federal, state and institutional financial assistance programs to help determine an individual’s eligibility for grants, loans, work-study and scholarships in post-secondary education.
Students who attend the FAFSA Frenzy will receive:
- Free professional assistance completing the 2018-2019 FAFSA
- Free information regarding federal student aid programs and Missouri state aid programs
- A chance to win a scholarship for enrollment in a Missouri postsecondary program in fall 2018
“FASFA gives our students access to a higher education,” Missouri College Advising Corps College Advisor Robbie Goodson said. “I recently had a student who was resigned he couldn’t afford college. We discussed the importance of completing the FAFSA where he realized through federal dollars and financial aid, college is truly within his reach. Now he is going through the college application process. This event helps our students better understand the concept of FAFSA and financial aid, giving hope to many of our students for a collegiate life after graduation.”
