The FAFSA Frenzy has been helping Washington County seniors complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) since 2014.  The event has helped more than 570 students receive free assistance in completing the FAFSA and understand the Financial Aid process.  Support is provided by Financial Aid professionals and community members to help students qualify for Federal and State Aid.

Students that complete the FAFSA by March 1st of each year have been entered into a drawing for a scholarship.  The scholarship donations have been provided by the sponsors of the FAFSA Frenzy each year.
