On February 7, 2017, our President and CEO, Bonnie Sutton and Access student, Bryce Norwood joined NCAN and many others for a briefing on Capitol Hill asking Congress to #FixFAFSA. While the The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) enables millions of students to attend college, the complexity and length results in low completion rates and leaves roughly $24 billion in federal student aid unclaimed.
In fact, Bryce almost lost his scholarship to James Madison University due to the complexities of the form. We were thrilled to be part of the briefing! A huge thank you to our fellow panelists and to Bryce for sharing his story!
