FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. It’s how U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens get money for college, including:

  • Federal financial aid, like grants, work-study, or loans.
  • State financial aid, like the Cal Grant.
  • Some school-based financial aid, like scholarships or grants given out by colleges.

Fill out the FAFSA even if you’re not sure you’ll get financial aid. Each year, almost 90,000 California students miss out on major grant money because they choose not to fill out the FAFSA–don’t be one of them!
