INDIANAPOLIS — Students and families are now able to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid for education beyond high school next year.

Tens of millions of dollars are available for families in Indiana, according to a press release from INvestEd, an Indiana based non-profit providing guidance for families filling out the application.

Last year, INvestEd helped more than 10,000 people in Indiana at events and workshops throughout the state, according to the release.

One of those events, College Goal Sunday, is a statewide event held every October and February and helps families fill out the FAFSA. College Goal Sunday will be held virtually on Oct. 25.

“As we work to close achievement gaps and grow Indiana’s economy, it’s essential for all Hoosiers to have the guidance they need to pursue valuable education pathways,” said Teresa Lubbers, Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education and Chair of the Governor’s Workforce Cabinet, in the release. “For decades, INvestEd has been an invaluable partner in raising awareness about the FAFSA. We encourage all Hoosier families, students and schools to take advantage of these free resources. Together, we can increase access and help more Hoosiers complete the certificates and degrees they need to thrive in today’s job workforce.”

For more information on free resources available for INvestED, you can visit its website.

For more information from an INvestED expert on filling out the FAFSA, you can call 317-715-9007.

The FAFSA is due by April 15.
