About FAFSA and student loans

You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year.  The FAFSA gives you access to grant and scholarship opportunities.  As a foster care youth, you are automatically eligible for the Pell Grant.  The FAFSA will also inform you of loan opportunities.  Remember, loans are money that must be repaid with interest, so it is best not to take out loans if at all possible.  ETV will not repay loans.
