    FAFSA open for 2020-2021 school year; Grants up to $6,195 available
    Do you know someone who wants to go to college in the fall of 2020?
    The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) opens today for the 2020-2021 school year. Most Alabama public high school seniors will qualify for a Pell Grant of up to $6,195. That's money which doesn't have to be paid back and can be used for a wide variety of academic and technical education after high school.
    Savvy families will complete the FAFSA as soon as possible to maximize resources available to pay for college. More than 330 high schools participating in Alabama Possible’s Cash for College campaign have committed to helping every senior complete their FAFSA.
    Ready to start a FAFSA? Go straight to fafsa.gov
