Free Money for Completing the FAFSA
In an effort to increase FAFSA completion rates, students who complete their FAFSA are eligible for financial compensation.

MCAN has 5,000 gift cards ready to distribute to students as they complete their FAFSA. These will be mailed directly to students based on when their FAFSA is submitted.

These will be mailed directly to students based on when their FAFSA is submitted - the student doesn't need to do anything but complete their FAFSA and if they are one of the first 5,000 they will receive a mailing! Gift cards are available until they have been exhausted (even beyond May 1).
