Seniors can still fill out the FAFSA® and determine their eligibility for federal and state financial aid. Plus, students who complete the FAFSA by February 28 can become eligible for $500 College Board Opportunity Scholarships!
College Board has partnered with Benefits Data Trust—a national nonprofit—to connect Opportunity Scholarships participants with Wyatt℠, a free FAFSA assistance chatbot that answers questions via text message. Your students can receive around-the-clock help from Wyatt. All seniors can sign up for Wyatt using the link at the top of the Opportunity Scholarships homepage. By confirming completion of the FAFSA, your seniors can enter drawings for $500 scholarships!
