Cash for College encourages Alabama high schools to rally around Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) completion.  


Cash for College uses local data, research, best practices, and community expertise to focus, mobilize, and improve FAFSA completion efforts already happening in schools. This program provides school-based teams with professional development workshops, guidance counselor toolkits, connections to college and university partners, media resources, and technical assistance, and access to shared data to drive continuous improvement. At the end of FAFSA season, Cash for College will honor local communities’ successes with media recognition, a celebration event, and cash incentives to recognize schools with the greatest improvement in FAFSA completion.
