FAFSA Frenzy kicks off October 1

On September 30, 2016, Posted by , In Uncategorized, With Comments Off on FAFSA Frenzy kicks off October 1


GUK is kicking off FAFSA Frenzy on October 1, a statewide effort to promote and support GUK seniors in successfully completing and submitting the FAFSA. As an incentive, the first high school in each of GUK’s five regions to have 85% of their senior class complete the FAFSA will receive funding to host a pizza party for their entire senior class!

  • Access to an online toolkit of FAFSA-related materials and media for students and parents as well as resources to help counselors and advisors in assisting with FAFSA promotion and completion

  • Access to weekly reports showing which seniors have completed the FAFSA (available through your GEAR UP College & Career Advisor).

  • An allowance of $100 GEAR UP funds to support a FAFSA workshop for seniors

  • Weekly “FAFSA Frenzy Friday” emails to share progress of each school in the program and highlight FAFSA-related resources and local activities

  • A giant FAFSA Frenzy tracker wall cling to visibly track FAFSA completion

GUK also continues to promote the importance of completing the FAFSA on TV and radio statewide with new Public Service Announcements created and produced by Kentucky students.
