Cash for College encourages Alabama high schools to rally around Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) completion. The FAFSA is required for any student seeking federal and state financial aid, including grants and loans in all colleges. According to the US Department of Education, 9 out of 10 students who complete a FAFSA attend college the following fall.

Many Alabama students qualify for Pell Grants of up to $5,920 per year. Pell Grants do not have to be repaid. Students planning to enroll in college in Fall 2018 may complete their FAFSA as early as October 1, 2017.
