2) This is the application that will qualify you or your student for State and Federal Funding
3) Many colleges and universities require this be filled out as a part of the application for their privately funded scholarships.
4) The FAFSA is not just for university. This important document can help students receive funding for other post-secondary institutions that receive Title IV funding.
Alaska Performance Scholarship
