PURPOSE

The purpose of this campaign is to ensure that every Detroit senior is supported with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). 

Additionally, our goal is to support schools with better understanding and assisting their students with the entire financial aid process. This includes the application, verification, award acceptance, and disbursement in the fall. 

MCAN has adopted this national campaign, and DCAN supports Detroit high schools and community-based organizations with their financial aid efforts.
