Broward County Public Schools is reminding juniors and seniors that $19 million dollars in federal student aid have yet to be claimed, in Broward County Alone.
To determine eligibility, students have to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Students are automatically considered for up to $6,300 in Federal Student Aid if the student or anyone in his or her immediate family receives free or reduced lunch, Medicaid benefits, Supplemental Security Income, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or Special Supplemental Nutritional Program for Women, Infants and Children.
Errors made during the application process are the main reason why FAFSA submissions are rejected. To assist with the successful completion of the FAFSA, BCPS is offering free online labs every week:
