FAFSA Frenzy helps thousands of Missouri students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid every year. The FAFSA is the primary form used by federal, state, and institutional financial assistance programs in determining an individual's eligibility for grants, loans, work-study, and scholarships.
Volunteer now for FAFSA Frenzy 2017-18
If you have a passion for helping students overcome barriers to accessing and succeeding in higher education, volunteer to help out at a FAFSA Frenzy event near you. The 2018-19 FAFSA is scheduled to be available beginning October 1, 2017, and high schools, postsecondary institution, and community organizations will be hosting FAFSA Frenzy events through January 31, 2018. With 172 events scheduled in 50 Missouri counties, there are plenty of opportunities to assist students at a location and date/time convenient for you. You do not have to be a FAFSA expert to volunteer; sites need volunteers to assist with registration tables, setting up before an event, and more.
