you looking for financial aid and college scholarship
information? There is a new tool available for people who want to
apply for federal student aid. This new tool, called
FAFSA4caster, is available to help students prior to their senior year
in high school figure out what kind of money and aid they will qualify
for if they want to go on to college. Previously if you wanted to
find out what kind of federal grants and federal student aid was
available, you had to wait until spring of your senior year in high
school. Then you were able to fill out the FAFSA (Free Aplication
for Federal Student Aid) application and find out what you qualified
for. With FAFSA4caster, students will be able to get student aid
information earlier so they can make better decisions on what college,
university, community college or tech school they should attend.
The current version of FAFSA4caster does not display all information
about the federal student aid available, but they promise to update the
service to do so. When they do students will be
able to see an estimate of their entire student aid package (which
would also include student loans).
One of the other major benefits of the FAFSA4caster service is that
when the student wants to fill out the full FAFSA application, it will
pre-fill in 51 of the 102 questions. This will make filling out
the full application much quicker and easier.
The FAFSA4caster is available at www.FederalStudentAid.ed.gov and the
full FAFSA application can be found at
