Looking for money for college? You’d be surprised how much gets overlooked. $2.9 billion in federal aid is left unclaimed in the U.S. each year. In California alone, $396 million was simply left on the table. Just under 50% of high school graduates failed to get free federal grant money because of one simple mistake. They did not complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (“FAFSA”).
Don’t make the same mistake. Jamie Wallace of Get Smart for College, a UCLA trained independent college counselor will guide you through how to apply for federal and state money, money from your schools, and how to search for private money.
