INDIANAPOLIS — Financial aid experts will be able to help Indiana families and students fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on Sunday.

College Goal Sunday is happening from 2-4 p.m. local time at 39 sites across Indiana. Volunteers will walk through the online form line-by-line and answer families’ individual questions as needed.

The FAFSA is required for students to be considered for federal and state grants, scholarships and federal student loans at most colleges, universities and vocational and technical schools nationwide.

Students should attend College Goal Sunday with their parent(s) or guardian(s), and parent(s) should bring completed 2021 IRS 1040 tax returns, W-2 Forms and other 2021 income and benefits information. Students who worked should also bring their income information.

Students 24 years of age or older may attend alone and bring their completed 2021 IRS 1040 tax return, W-2 Form or other 2021 income and benefits information.

Those who attend the event have the chance to win a $1,000 scholarship.

The deadline to file the FAFSA is April 15.
