2022-23 FAFSA Challenge Materials

The Connecticut Governor’s Office and the CSDE are continuing the FAFSA Challenge during the 2022-23 school year, beginning in September 2022 with a nine-month initiative where high schools across the state will be charged with boosting FAFSA completion rates for the class of 2023 relative to the class of 2022. The FAFSA Challenge will provide microgrants, trainings, and other resources to eligible high schools serving students with high needs as a means of helping seniors access the financial aid they deserve to pursue a postsecondary education.
